Using LOAD CSV in the Real World
Nicole White, Data Scientist for Neo4j, demonstrates the process of downloading a raw .csv file from the Internet and importing it into Neo4j. This process includes cleaning the .csv file, visualizing a data model, and writing the Cypher query that will import the data. This presentation is meant to make Neo4j users aware of common obstacles when dealing with real-world data in .csv format, along with best practices when using LOAD CSV. Nicole grew up in Kansas City, Missouri and then spent four years at LSU in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where she got a degree in economics with a minor in mathematics. She then went to the University of Texas at Austin where she got her masters degree in analytics, and it was during this time that she found Neo4j and began exploring its capabilities. When she’s not graphing all the things, she spends her time playing card games and board games.
