Private Social Networks

30th April 2014 in London at Skills Matter

There are 2 other SkillsCasts available from The graphs of gaming and recruitment

Is it time for a Facebook reboot? What’s wrong with LinkedIn? Please can somebody stop all those ads? Please! Social networking and recruitment are at their best when people are connected in an authentic way. Matt will talk about building your own private social network using Neo4J.

He’ll cover some of the lessons a small startup has learnt along the way.

He’ll cover some of the modelling pitfalls, how to deal with time, multi tenancy and sentiment. He’ll also talk through hosting and extending neo4J through managed server extensions.

Finally Matt will briefly touch on some more advanced topics like centrality, transitivity and how someone you have never met can make you fat.
