I will help you understand Graphs and apply them to your project

Portrait of Max De Marzi

Because data is becoming increasingly connected and Graphs help you mine those connections.

Because you are moving fast and need unlimited flexibility in your schema.

Because your data is deeply associative and user generated (network-shaped or hierarchical data).

Because friends don’t let friends write atrocious recursive joins in SQL.

  4. Hi Max,

    You really did a great job and I really learned a lot from this blog .. I tried to build a gem based on neography and your blog posts for managing friends relationships .. I wonder what’s the best way to refer to your work and blogs.

  5. Hi Max,
    I saw your webinar video of making the Facebook Graph Search with Neo4j and wanted to try the http://neographsearch.maxdemarzi.com/ you have left for us here. But when I try to login by clicking the “Sign in with Facebook” button, I get this error:

    Do I have to do or install something before trying to use this web application, or the app is no longer alive?
