Neo4J is the world's leading graph database, meaning it is used by more customers than any other graph database. It offers several advantages over fixed schema databases, especially for startups given the immaturity of their data models. Neo4J does not require a schema like Relational DataBase Management Systems (RDBMS). Instead, Graph databases save data as "Nodes" that are connected with "Relationships". Nodes and relationships both have "properties" which si how humans think about concepts in the real word. Nodes may be arbitrarily added or removed without re-writing an entire database schema, a true savings of costs and effort.
The Neo4J implementation of a graph database has become the industry standard. Cypher itself, a language similar to the Structured Query Language (SQL) has become a sort of Pseudo standard within the space. The course will cover the basics of Cypher and some advanced topics like sorting and filtering return values.
There are still seats available as of the time of this article. if you will be in Vancouver at the end of August, please come out and learn some Neo4J. The cost covers the logistics so the course is basically almost free.
