Michelle Sanver – This Week’s Featured Community Member

Michelle has been a member of the Neo4j community since 2013 and has presented multiple presentations focused frequently on the use of PHP and Neo4j, but also going into the internals of the database.

Michelle also created omnomhub, a recipe site for people who like to alter recipes, if ever so slightly. It’s like Github, but for cooking.

Outside of the Neo4j ecosystem Michelle is the President of PHP Women and is a strong advocate for gender diversity in the industry.

On behalf of the Neo4j community thank you for all your work Michelle!

Intro to Cypher

We didn’t have an online meetup this week so our video of the week is an Intro to Cypher presented by my colleague Will Lyon.

If you’re new to Neo4j or the Cypher query language this is a great starting point. Will takes you on a journey where he uses data from the Yelp Dataset Challenge to introduce the graph data model, import the data into Neo4j, and then run queries against it

Next Week

Next week is a very busy one for events in the world of graph databases. Hopefully there’s something near you and if not there’s always the online meetup.
