As a giant developer playground for collaborative coding, github represents a few fascinating data sets: a social graph of people and their skills, a project graph of branches and forks, and a dependency graph of projects. We'll explore this coding landscape by diving into these graphs with different technologies, approaches, frontends and approaches.
This workshop is for graphistas of all skill levels. Participate in a few hours of coding led by experienced Neo4j developers. Learn while you play with github project data, focusing on data patterns, data queries, and visualization.
What You'll Learn:
- About Neo4j and graph database
- How to import and structure huge data sets
- How to query data
- How to visualize data
- Create original graph-based applications
