Hi graph gang,
In this week’s video, Adam Cowley and Jesus Barrasa give a hands on introduction to n10s, the low-code UI for loading RDF data into Neo4j.
Jasper Blues continues the series of blog posts showing how to build a Neo4j-powered mobile game, Mathias Tiberghien shows how to create a Neo4j backed application using TypeScript, and Sebastian Daschner shows how to perform schema migrations in Kubernetes.
And finally, Adam Cowley launched the redesign of the Developer guides and a new beefed up Graph Data Science section.

Maxime Guery – This Week’s Featured Community Member
Maxime (a.k.a Cobra) is one of those community members that dived in full-force into the community soon after his discovery of graph databases. His experiences and interests are in AI and data science, so naturally, when he started a new role at Data Nostra working with Neo4j, he was hooked.
He’s quickly become one of the most helpful people on the Neo4j community site. We haven’t shared this with him yet, but we even received internal feedback on how “this community member is really going above and beyond answering questions”.
We see a lot of growth potential in Maxime and we’re super excited that he’s joined our community and become so active. His efforts are highly appreciated and we’re anticipating seeing the lives of many graph-enthusiast he’s going to help along his journey.
Cobra, thanks for being such an integral part of the Neo4j community and if there’s anything you need from us along the way, we’re here for you!
Exploring DBpedia with neosemantics
This week’s video is a presentation by Adam Cowley and Jesus Barrasa, in which they show how to import Dbpedia into Neo4j using the neosemantics (n10s) library.
In the talk they show how to query DBpedia’s SPARQL API for Real Madrid football players and import the results into Neo4j using the n10s graph app.
Developer Guides Refresh and New Graph Data Science content
Adam Cowley launched the refresh of the Developer guides, which you can find at neo4j.com/developer/get-started.
We’ve also beefed up the Graph Data Science section, including videos to explain all the main concepts.
Let us know what you think via the feedback option in the bottom right of each page.
Rock ‘n’ Roll Traffic Routing: Part 2
Jasper Blues continues the series of blog posts showing how to build a Neo4j-powered mobile game.
In part 2, Jasper shows how to use algorithms from the Graph Data Science Library to run route finding queries that take road closures into account.
Getting started with Neo4j Fabric, Kong, New Elixir driver, Migrations in Kubernetes
- Soham Dhodapkar explains how to get up and running with Neo4j Fabric, a new feature introduced in Neo4j 4.0 that makes it easier to store and retrieve data in multiple databases.
- Dominique Vassard released Seraph, an Elixir library that lets users query Neo4j databases.
- Dike Goodluck wrote a quick introduction to Cypher and Neo4j.
- Preet Kanwar continues the blog post series showing how to build a Neo4j backed application with Spring Boot and Kong, an open-source API gateway and microservice management layer. In part 4, we learn how to configure the Kong API gateway and make it the single point of entry into the AWS EKS cluster.
- Sebastian Daschner shows how to perform schema migrations of Neo4j instances that run in a managed Kubernetes environment, to enable zero-downtime deployments.
Exploring Graph Database Based Apps Using a Dynamic Model
Mathias Tiberghien shows how to create a Neo4j backed application using TypeScript, Angular, and a movies dataset.
In the blog post, Mattias takes us step by step through the class structure of the application, how that maps to the graph schema, and how the application evolved over time. The code for the application is available on GitHub.
Tweet of the Week
My favourite tweet this week was by Stéphane Nicoll:
The next milestone of Spring Boot 2.4 brings Spring Data Neo4j 6, with support of reactive repositories!— Stéphane Nicoll (@snicoll) July 29, 2020
There's also an auto-configuration for the Neo4j driver, independent of Spring Data. Cool stuff!
Thanks @meistermeier and @rotnroll666
