In this week’s newsletter, Chintan Desai demonstrates how the connected data capabilities of a graph database can help achieve what is either impossible or complicated with other database models. He performs analytics on a knowledge graph translated from the publicly available FDA Adverse Event Reporting System dataset, an RDBMS model. Then, we are able to answer such questions as: “What are the top five drugs reported directly by consumers for their side effects?” or “What drug combinations have the most side effects?” Download the Healthcare Analytics Sandbox from Neo4j and explore the database yourself.
We’ve extended the CFP deadline for NODES – an event by and for developers and data scientists – by a few more days! Don’t wait, submit your talk now- or by August 31, 2022 at the latest. Make sure to save the date for the Neo4j NODES conference on November 16 and 17, 2022.

GRAPH DATABASE: Solving Problems With Connected DataIn this presentation, Jennifer Reif explains how to explore graphs and how graphs provide data context. You’ll learn how to transform your projects into graph structures and optimize the model, as well as access data through queries, analysis, visualization, applications, and more!

TWEET OF THE WEEK: @rotnroll666Don’t forget to retweet if you like it!
Some estimations about Sloc, Cloc and Code via scc https://t.co/ytTCz9QwV0 including COCOMO. @RalfDMueller asked for some examples. I looked at Spring Boot, Spring Data Neo4j, Cypher-DSL and my biking application… Surely not 100% accurate, but it gives an idea of worth… pic.twitter.com/03QGBl52oG— Michael Simons (@rotnroll666) August 21, 2022
