This week’s video is from a new series about Spring Data Neo4j by Gerrit Meier.
Adam Cowley announced the launch of Charts, we launched the new Neo4j 4.0 certification, and Hantsy concludes the Spring Data Neo4j series by showing how to write custom queries.
And finally, Jesús Barrasa builds a graph of the UNESCO Thesaurus.
Cheers, Mark and the Developer Relations team

Spring Data Neo4j 6 – Episode 0
Our video this week is from a new Spring Data Neo4j Series by Gerrit Meier.
In the first video, Gerrit shows how to install Neo4j, import the movies graph, and then query it using the Neo4j Java driver.
Creating Charts from your Graphs
Adam Cowley announced the launch of Charts, a Neo4j Graph App that makes it easy to create charts on top of your graph data.
Charts has a visual query builder that generates the queries the charts are based on. Those queries can then be used in dashboards to create tables, bar charts, line charts, and more.
Customizing queries with Spring Data Neo4j
Hantsy continues the series of blog posts showing how to use Neo4j with Spring Boot.
In the fourth post, Hantsy shows how to write our own custom queries using the @Query annotation in Spring Data Neo4j.

QuickGraph#12 Working with a Multilingual Thesaurus
It’s been almost a year since the last QuickGraph, but Jesús Barrasa is back with QuickGraph #12, in which he graphs the UNESCO Thesaurus.
After showing how to import the thesaurus using n10s, Jesús shows how to make sense of the data using pure Cypher queries, as well as the GDS Library.
