Getting Graphic: Extract value from your data using Neo4j and Spring Data (Neo4j Online Meetup #48)

31 Jan, 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. Learn how to exploit the power of Neo4j quickly and powerfully using Spring Boot and Spring Data. The presenters will explain the types of data that benefit most from a graph database, then show a system of Spring Boot+Spring Data microservices 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! —————————– ABOUT THE SPEAKERS —————————– Jennifer Reif is an avid developer and problem-solver.
