Welcome to this week in Neo4j where we round up what’s been happening in the world of graph databases in the last 7 days.
This week we have a brand new Neo4j Community Site & Forum, High Fives and Low Fives are adding to the dating site, analyzing the European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations, and more!
Featured Community Member: Yisroel Yakovson
This week’s featured community member is Yisroel Yakovson, CEO at MatchLynx.
Yisroel Yakovson – This Week’s Featured Community Member
As part of his app he’s using the neo4j-graphql-js library to build a GraphQL API on top of Neo4j and been providing great feedback to help speed development.
On behalf of the Neo4j and GraphQL communities, thanks for all your work Yisroel!
New Neo4j Community Site & Forum
This week we launched our brand new Neo4j Community Site & Forum, which will act as a replacement for technical discussions that were previously taking place on Neo4j Users Slack.
You can ask and answer questions around the Neo4j Graph Platform, Cypher, Drivers, Integrations and more, as well as share your projects and blog posts.
We look forward to seeing you over there!
Dating Site: High Five, Low Five
In Part 8 Max adds functionality to allow users to High Five and Low Five posts. He also makes it possible to block users that abuse the feature.
In Part 9 we implement the read side of the feature. Users can now see the high fives they’ve been given, and won’t see any interactions with users that they’ve blocked.
Bolt Driver for Angular, Neo4j on CentOS, Heavyweight Boxing Graph
- Last week Yuvan Hirani created a heavyweight boxing graph during his work placement in our London office.

ESCO in Neo4j
Rik starts by showing how to import the data using Cypher’s LOAD CSV command, before executing shortest path queries between two job titles based on the skills required to do those jobs.
He concludes the post with a quick look at what we could do with this dataset using Neo4j Bloom.

Tweet of the Week
My favourite tweet this week was by Umberto Babini:
My first impression on Neo4j and CQL: Wow! Is it really that simple? Writing queries in Cypher QL it reminds me messages with old-school emojis 🙂— Umberto Babini (@umbobabo) August 24, 2018
Don’t forget to RT if you liked it too.
That’s all for this week. Have a great weekend!
