It’s only 4 days until GraphConnect San Francisco 2012 on Nov 6th and the Neo4j Community is thrilled to be part of the conference. We will have our own special Community Lounge, a cozy Swedish-style place to relax, chat and read graph database books.
Are you looking for action? Then we welcome you to hack with us on fun projects. During the entire day we will have presentations and discussions with Neo4j community contributors, covering a range of intriguing topics.
Monday Evening Meetup
On Monday evening, November 5, we are hosting a community event in the Thirsty Bear at 5 PM, where we want to tour some of the world-wide Neo4j-related meetups and projects that community members are working on. If you’re in the area you are invited to come along – we’ll take care of the food and beer.
Community runs IKEA-Style
On our last visit to San Francisco we had lots of fun visiting IKEA and choosing the perfect furniture for the Community Lounge. So we hope to recreate the Swedish culture that is part of Neo4j in our community place at the conference.

We have our own tentative agenda for entertaining you between GraphConnect sessions. So drop by the community lounge to listen to our community contributors or engage them in discussions.

RFID Interaction Graph
Much like during other conferences but especially at GraphConnect, we want to encourage everyone to connect and exchange ideas. To visualize the growing number of connections between our attendees we want to utilize active RFID-tags from OpenBeacon and record the collected interactions in a publicly accessible Neo4j graph for rendering, some interesting analytics and general hacking.
Show Me Your Graph & Graphs on Paper
If you participated in the Twitter contest for interesting graphs or sent in any graphs drawn with Paper for iPad, then you might find your graphs on display around the conference.
There will be more fun activities and opportunities in the Community Lounge to talk to speakers, Neo4j developers and community members, so make sure to come along – we hope to connect there!Yours truly,
Michael Hunger, Andreas Kollegger, Pernilla Lindh and Peter Neubauer
