Neo4j Government GraphDay
A one-day technology forum for federal government employees and contractors
Neo4j Government GraphDay starts with an explanation at high-level on the key concepts of Neo4j and a look into how government agencies can utilize graph technology to power their applications.
Hear from NASA Chief Knowledge Architect, David Meza, about how NASA is harnessing the graph database to organize lessons learned from past projects and keep astronauts safe.
Fred and Kim Kagan, from AEI and ISW, who have been instrumental in shaping national security policy starting with their work on Iraq in 2006 and working closely with General David Petraeus in Afghanistan, will speak about how their organizations leverage Neo4j for Open Source Intelligence Analysis and discuss how the graph database can revolutionize the intelligence analysis process.

1:30 - 5:00 - Training Sessions
With a mixture of theory and hands-on practice, developers will quickly learn how easy it is to work with a powerful graph database using Cypher as the query language. The session covers finding out how to design and implement a graph database model,and how to evolve an existing graph in a controlled manner to support new or changed requirements.
