Online Meetup: Building Conversational Experiences with Amazon Alexa and Neo4j

In this week’s online meetup GraphAware‘s Christophe Willemsen showed us how to combine Amazon Alexa and Neo4j to build great conversational experiences.

You can catch a live version of this talk at GraphConnect NYC 2017. Christophe will also be hanging out in the DevZone giving demos of the Alexa to anyone who’s interested.

Graphing metaphors, Building a Source Code Schema, GraphQL and GoT

Neo4j, Fraud Detection, and Python

The Data Science Milan group recently hosted an event which focused on different data science applications that are made possible using graph databases.

The video contains a mix of talks in English and Italian – the one in English is about 50 minutes in so if you’re language challenged like me you’ll want to skip forwards to there.

On the podcast: Tomaz Bratanic

This week on the podcast Rik interviewed Tomaz Bratanic, who’s written many great blog posts that we’ve featured in previous versions of TWIN4j.

Tomaz and Rik talk about Tomaz’s move from playing poker to coding fulltime, why he loves the Cypher query language, and more!

Tweet of the Week

My favourite tweet this week was by Max Sumrall, my former colleague on the Neo4j clustering team:

Don’t forget to RT if you liked it too.

That’s all for this week. Have a great weekend!

Cheers, Mark
