Max will introduce us to Neo4j, an open source graph database that you can embed, deploy as a server, or use in the cloud. Starting with graph databases 101, you'll leave with an understanding of the differences between relational databases and graph databases. After this session, you'll know when to use a graph database, and you'll have added another tool to your toolbox.

If you are dealing with highly connected data, writing crazy stored procedures, battling monster join tables, or just want a new perspective on databases, you'll want to attend. Learn the secret sauce behind Neo4j, and see some example Neo4j projects to help you get started.
