Event description

Description

As part of Data Day Texas, we invite some of the best speaker/instructors to come a day early and teach workshops. In the graph space, there are few people better at teaching core graph concepts than Will Lyon and Ryan Boyd of Neo4j. We are happy that they have agreed to teach a class while in Austin.

Although Neo4j is often using by application developers, there's a growing trend of data scientists using graphs to help with their work.

In this session we'll look at how to combine Neo4j and the Cypher query language with the Python data science stack including libraries such as Pandas and matplotlib.
We'll look at how to do exploratory data analysis as well as find insights into networked datasets using the newly released graph algorithms package through the use of hands on tutorials. We’ll start with an overview of the property graph data model and an introduction to Cypher, the query language for graphs, then quickly move on to using graph algorithms like centrality and community detection to help make sense of data. Finally, we’ll explore how to connect Neo4j to the Python data science stack, using Pandas, matplotlib and Python NLP tools.
