In this talk I'll introduce this way of modelling data using Neo4j, the world's leading graph database. I'll show how to write queries using Neo4j's Cypher query language, and will discuss the Scala specific tools you can use to build your own graph based applications.

Graph databases provide a rich data model that allows us to model, query, and manipulate highly connected data far more than we've been used to in either the relational world, or in many of the contemporary NoSQL stores.
