Abstract: Neo4j is an innovative open-source NoSQL database. It is based on the graph theory in contrast to the relational databases based on the set theory. This half a day course teaches the core functionality of Neo4j. By means of a fancy but realistic use case, participants learn how to leverage the power of graph databases through the Cypher, graph query language. The session covers querying graph patterns with Cypher, using some basic graph algorithms, as well as designing and implementing a graph database model.
