This Week in Neo4j – 2 September 2017

Welcome to this week in Neo4j where we round up what’s been happening in the world of graph databases in the last 7 days.

This week’s featured community member is Felienne Hermans, Assistant Professor at Delft University of Technology.

Felienne Hermans – This Week’s Featured Community Member

Felienne became known in the Neo4j community for her popular talk ‘spreadsheets are graphs’, which she presented at GraphConnect Europe 2015, GOTO Berlin 2015, and several other conferences and meetups. You can also read a transcript of the talk if you’re not a fan of video content.

Felienne uses Neo4j to do graph analysis on spreadsheets to help find code smells and areas of spreadsheets that need refactoring. She explains this in detail in her interview on Rik Van Bruggen’s Graphistania podcast.

And this week Felienne achieved tenure!

On behalf of the Neo4j community, congratulations Felienne and thanks for all your work!

Online Meetup: Analysing the football transfer window

In this week’s online meetup Jesús Barrasa and I tried to figure out what’s been going on in this crazy football transfer window with the help of graphs.

We showed how to import CSV data, clean it up, make implicit relationships explicit, and find some unexpected insights using the Cypher query language.

In next week’s online meetup Michael Hunger will show us the new Neo4j graph algorithms library that was released a few weeks ago.
