While it’s good to read about graph databases, sometimes you just want to sit back, relax and watch the most awesome movie ever made with your name on it… “Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome” (“two men enter, one man leaves!”)… but other times you just want to a video or two about graph databases!
The guys at Neo4j have put together a great collection of videos (30 and counting) at http://video.neo4j.org.
|57:34||Introduction to Neo4j
CEO Emil Eifrém introduces NOSQL, graph databases and Neo4j. He presents the evolution and current state of the NOSQL field and discusses the applicability of the technologies. After showing the property graph datamodel he outlines the possibilities and use-cases for complex, connected enterprise data. Some examples on how to develop with Neo4j in Java and Spring. It closes by showing advanced things like the Cypher query language, graph traversals and graph algorithms.
|56:48||How to get started with Neo4j
Andreas Kollegger brings us through a fast paced intro summarizing where graph databases fit in the NOSQL world. He then dives into Neo4j to demonstrate its usability, where it shines in various use cases, and the ease to begin working with the database.
