There are 1 other SkillsCast available from Empowering Github Social with Neo4j and Mining and Searching text with Graph Databases

With more than 9 million users and 21 million repositories, Github is the world's biggest code sharing platform. Its API offers a window to the public activity of about 600.000 events a day.

In this talk you will discover how this amount of user activities transformed in a suitable graph can become a new source of knowledge.

A demonstration of how Neo4j and machine learning algorithms built on top of it can leverage this tremendous amount of hidden valuable real-time data to gain new insights, offering new application possibilities, from recruitment to social network analysis and recommendations.

The talk will cover topics like data pipelines to Neo4j, technical challenges, algorithms and application ideas you can build around this kind of platforms.
