This presentation introduces the graph model as obvious choice for rich and connected data. Graph Databases are a category of open-source NoSQL datastores which are specialized in storing, handling and querying graph structures efficiently.
Use cases represent the applicability of the graph model across many domains.
Neo4j as the most widely used graph database supports the property graph model, which is explained in detail.
To query a graph database a powerful and expressive but also friendly and easily understandable query language that is tailored for graph patterns is key. Neo4j's Cypher is such a query language developed from the ground up to support expressing challenging use-cases in a comprehensive way.
A series of examples rounds up the presentation to apply the lessons learned.
