Hi graph gang,
In this week’s video, Will Lyon introduces GraphQL Architect, a Neo4j Graph App for building and deploying GraphQL APIs.
Stefan Dreverman builds the UI-‘engine’ in the low code platform, Rik Van Bruggen explains what Recommender Systems and Contact Tracing have in common, and Mahjoub Saifeddine builds a basic web crawler using Go and Neo4j.
And finally, Josh Thurston has written a tutorial showing how to use Neo4j with Python’s popular Flask web application framework.

Building A GRANDstack Real Estate Search App: Part 3 | Geospatial Data With GraphQL
This week’s video is part of a series by Will Lyon showing how to build a GRANDstack Real Estate Search App.
In the third video, Will continues with geospatial data and introduces GraphQL Architect, a Neo4j Graph App for building and deploying GraphQL APIs.
In other GraphQL news:
- Preet Kanwar started a series of blog posts showing how to build a GraphQL API with Spring Boot, Neo4j, and Kong. In the first post, Preet introduces GraphQL and shows how we can combine GraphQL’s Schema Definition Language with Spring Boot.
- Davey Brown shared idenavoice, a solution to online voting based on the GRANDstack.
- João Esperancinha shows how to handle data related to a hypothetical list of investigator cases using the GRANDstack.
COVID19: The Effect of the Seasons
#BuildForCovid19 is a platform that aims to defeat COVID-19 with hackathons.
One of these hackathons, The Effects of the Seasons, has started a proof of concept using the spaCy library to extract sentence structure from COVID-19 documents and analyse the results in Neo4j.
Building a low-code platform with Neo4j: Frames and Views
Stefan Dreverman continues his series of blog posts showing how to build a low-code platform with Neo4j.
