Michal Bachman – This Week’s Featured Community Member

Michal is one of the earliest members of the Neo4j community in London, starting to work with graphs in his time at OpenCredo in 2011.

He then went to Imperial to do a Masters degree in Computing before founding GraphAware in July 2013.

Michal spoke at GraphConnect in 2014 and 2015, has spoken at countless meetups, presented numerous training sessions, and of course featured on the podcast last June.

Over the past few years Michal and his team have released multiple open source tools to the community, such as neo4j-reco, neo4j-timetree, GraphGen, as well as the PHP driver.

This week they may have released their coolest product yet – neo4j-nlp, a toolkit for combining graphs and Natural Language Processing. I’m looking forward to playing around with this one.

On behalf of the Neo4j community, thanks to you and your team for all their work Michal!

Online Meetup: Finding connections between components from 100s of GBs of data at Autodesk

In this week’s online meetup, Ravi Krishnaswamy, Lead Software Architect at Autodesk showed us how to manage component complexity with graph databases.

Ravi has built a graph containing data pulled from multiple packaging and security databases and showed how to write queries to find out what components were affected by various security vulnerabilities.

We won’t have an online meetup next week, but the week after Norbert Preining will show us how to analyse Debian packages using Neo4j.
