Creating a Data Marvel (Comics) with Spring & Neo4j – NODES 2019

15 Oct, 2019



Many of us have a great deal of experience working with traditional relational databases, and with so-called NoSQL databases (both document stores & key/value pairs) as well. Graph databases provide capabilities that we may not have fully leveraged…​yet. Come to this session to learn how to exploit the power of Neo4j quickly and powerfully using Spring Boot and Spring Data. The presenter will explain how to handle importing a real-world data set (complete with obstacles and workarounds) to the graph, then live-code a Spring Boot+Spring Data application to demonstrate how to really USE it. Learn how to elevate the relationships among your data to the same level as your data and tap the full power of Spring Data & Neo4j!
