This Week in Neo4j: GraphRAG, Testcontainers, Metadata Management, App Dev and more

Welcome to This Week in Neo4j, your weekly fix for news from the world of graph databases!
If you would like to know more about the recent ISO GQL publication, I’d like to draw your attention to our Discussion Panel happening on Monday, 13 May. We also look at a practical guide for GraphRAG, how to work with Testcontainers and Neo4j as well as a Metadata Management tool. I also added the overview video from a graph meetup from last month.

NODES 2024 Call for Papers is now open! Please submit your graph stories. We love to hear from you.

For Graph Database Beginners, I picked the Introduction to Neo4j Graph Data Science GraphAcademy course this week.

I hope you enjoy this issue,
Alexander Erdl

GRAPHRAG: Enhancing the Accuracy of RAG Applications With Knowledge Graphs
GraphRAG uses the structured nature of graph databases, which organize data as nodes and relationships, to enhance the depth and contextuality of retrieved information. Tomaz Bratanic wrote a practical guide to constructing and retrieving information from knowledge graphs in RAG applications with Neo4j and LangChain.
TESTCONTAINERS: Neo4j Testcontainers – Everything You Need to Know
Automated tests have become crucial in software engineering in the last few years, even more than in the past. Sergio De Lorenzis discusses Integration Tests in this article and shows how Test Containers for Java can use successful test suites and enable the stability of your software.
Anansi simplifies metadata management with its intuitive interface and powerful Graph DB, offering real-time insights into your system’s metadata.
