The London Project Data Analytics Meetup is joining forces with the Neo4J Meetup to explore how graph databases may help to transform project management.
We'll start with a 30 minute introduction to Neo4j and graph databases. In this talk Mark will explain what graph databases are, how they can be used, what purposes that they serve. During this session we will present, explain and discuss introductory topics that require no prior knowledge on graph databases at all. We'll even have a quick demo to get you excited about the power of graphs.
We’ll also have a brief interactive session to explore how connections could be forged from other datasets and the value that this could provide.
