Speakers include Scott David from the World Economic Forum, Prem Malhotra from Cisco Systems and Karen Lopez from InfoAdvisors.
- Graphs in Action: This track delivers a more hands-on experience with graph databases, diving into specific use cases and helping you integrate your graph database with other platforms and frameworks.
