Last week 50 graph database enthusiasts showed up for the SF Graph Database
meetup, sponsored by GraphConnect and QCon SF. QCon and GraphConnect provided a small keg of local beer, pizza and a pair of free tickets to both conferences.
Three locals presented their projects to the group: Mathieu Bastian
, Data Scientist at LinkedIn and co-founder of Gephi
, presented common graph database use cases and graph visualizations. Alexander Smirnoff, from Kaiser Permanente dove into his side project, the Neo4j JCA connector
, and his start-up Netoprise
that combines your social graphs into one simple hub. This talk was followed up by Corey Farwell
, an undergrad at Cal Poly San Louis Obispo, who demonstrated is RIAARadar app, built on the Neo4j graph database
, that easily points you to which musical artists are affiliated with the RIAA.
Jason McVetta, consultant at Harvard Medical School, won free passes to GraphConnect during this meetup.
