Why are people abandoning their RDMS databases and switching to graph databases like Neo4j? It's more than a "big data" trend. Graph databases can handle more complex data and relationships, which are baked in at the record level. Take a trip through the nuances of the most popular graph database, Neo4j, with Duane Nickull and find out if it's right for your data. He covers key concepts, like transitions, searches, and traversals, and shows you how to work with nodes, the relationships between nodes, and navigate large graphs of information. Developers will be interested in the chapters devoted to Cypher, the query language for finding, creating, modifying, and deleting Neo4J data. There are ten coding challenges sprinkled throughout the course, allowing you to test your Cypher skills, and the exercise files feature a fun, interactive mini "IMDB" that explores data from your favorite movies.

Topics include:
  • What are NoSQL and graphic databases?
  • Examining basic graph modeling
  • Using Cypher to query Neo4j
  • Using paths to traverse multiple nodes
  • Getting properties back from paths
  • Using specific nodes
  • Handling conditions
  • Creating entities
  • Deleting entities

Welcome

Hi, I'm Duane Nickull. I'm here to tell you about this great new course called Up and Running with Neo4j. Neo4j is a graph database and it's really a new entry into the whole world of data persistence. And there are a lot of developer jobs open for Neo4j developers. This video will give you concrete examples of hands-on working solutions for various problems with graph database transitions, searches, traversals, teach you how to work with nodes, relationships between nodes, and how to work with very large graphs of information.

If you're a business person, this video series will also help you understand why people are switching over to graph databases and abandoning their RDBMS systems. For developers, you'll be able to learn all about Cypher, which is a query language used to modify, create, delete, and just about do everything else you want with Neo4j data. You'll get your hands dirty, and there are plenty of code challenges for you within this course.

There are currently no FAQs about Up and Running with Neo4j.
