GraphConnect: Graph Leadership Visualized

It has been a while, and I have missed you all. I am extremely stoked to announce GraphConnect, a conference that is all about graphs, and the graphs you find in your day to day life.



We have some great featured speakers lined up including:

James Fowler, Co-Author of Connected. His book discusses the importance and impact of your social graph. Here’s his interview with Stephen Colbert.

Rebecca Parsons, CTO of ThoughtWorks, will also be presenting. With more than 20 years of application development experience, Rebecca will speak about today’s evolving data, and how it can be used in modern society. Here’s a video of one of her talks at QCon London.

What is this conference about?

It’s about connecting and celebrating graph’s new relevance with modern data. GraphConnect SF is a place where developers, technical decision makers, and thought leaders alike will convene to celebrate modern data and its expanding connectedness, through graph databases, network analysis, social applications and open-source projects. There will also be a great afterparty with food, drinks and a fantastic view.

The two-day GraphConnect will also include tutorials, an unConference, and some great presentations, jam packed into two days.


The conference takes place November 5-6, 2012. Are you already planning to go to QCon SF? Perfect – you’re already in town to join us.

I don’t see any reason why not. A graph conference is extremely fitting for a company like Neo, where we value relationships just as much as the graph nodes themselves. Also, with Neo4j being the world’s leading graph database, it makes sense that we are pioneering the graph space and its dialogue.
