With the newest version of Neo4j out in the wild as a final release, we have a lot of new things to talk about: from changes to our core data model to new language concepts and keywords as well as all new interactive use-cases.

This training offers the first step in building a good knowledge of graph databases, and covers the core functionality of the open source Neo4j graph database. With a mixture of theory and hands-on practice sessions, you will quickly learn how easy it is to work with a powerful graph database using Cypher as the query language.

What will you learn?

  • An understanding of graph databases
  • Install and operate Neo4j
  • Use the Neo4j development tools productively
  • Exploit the strengths of the Property Graph model and the Cypher query language
  • Build confidence in building a graph enabled application

Which topics will we cover?

  • Introduction to Neo4j
  • Introduction to the Cypher graph query language
  • Advanced Cypher Usage
  • Social, logistics, recommendation, scientific and other use-cases in real world domains
  • Opportunity to consult first hand with concrete questions on current projects, possible implementations and proof of concepts


* Attendees won’t need any previous experience with Neo4j, NOSQL databases or specific development languages, but will need their own laptop with Neo4j 2.x installed.
