In 2021, Neo4j launched its Graphs4APAC initiative to provide Asia Pacific professionals with free training, materials, and tools to learn and enhance their graph technology skills. This initiative aims to give back to the regions Neo4j currently serves through an open source approach of sharing and collaborating.
