A Rapid Introduction to Neo4j

Neo4j is the leading graph database in the NoSQL space. It's rich data model allows us to model, query, and manipulate highly connected data far more than we've been used to in either the relational world, or in many ofthe contemporary NoSQL stores.

This talk will provide a rapid, code-focussed introduction to the brand new Neo4j 1.3 release. We'll cover the basics of graph stores, and the Neo4j APIs for manipulating and traversing graphs. We'll then use this knowledge to explore the Doctor Who universe, using graph databases to infer useful knowledge from connected, semi-structured data. Finally we'll come up the stack and think through some solution deployments for using Neo4j for enterprise and Web-grade deployments.
