Approved_talk approved

In this 1,5 hour workshop you will learn how to work with Neo4j, the leading graph database on the Java platform. The workshop will be composed of a series of lectures, each followed by a set of TDD-style assignments.

You will learn about data modeling, querying and writing to a graph database. Our focus will be the database and the CYPHER query-language, not ORMs or boilerplate code. This makes it easier for you to understand the core concepts of Neo4j.

After the workshop the attendees will have a clear understanding of what a graph database is, how to work with it and when to use it.

The participants will need to bring their own laptop with Java preinstalled. The courseware will be published on github after the workshop.
