All of us have worked with relational DBs like MySQL or PostgreSQL, but for many use cases they aren't the best option. Graph databases have a simpler, more powerful model for handling complex related data. In this talk we'll work with Neo4j to explore the advantages of graph DBs. Attendees will learn the graph model, how graph DBs let you do things that are practically impossible with SQL, and the best options for integrating one into your application -- new or existing.

Amazing hands on with Neo4J! I'll be using this a lot more now :)
Excellent info and Ed is a great speaker
Fantastic speaker and material
Great presentation; I want to graph-db the hell out of all the datas now!
Very cool system and good examples. Hard to make it not a bit of a sales pitch but it wasn't heavy-handed. Definitely about the tech vs the provider. Looking forward to exploring this more.
Ed's an experienced speaker and it shows.
Very nicely presented. Good pace with each facet, starting with the 'basics' of a relational database and then outlining how graph-db is different. It was a great walk through, and the live demo of using it. One critique...Besides making it easier to query related data, I would have liked more reasons why one would want to use graph-db. But maybe that's a different topic.
At first sight it looked too good to be true, almost like a marketing speech.
But... you got me curious and now I'll go out there and try it myself. Good job!
Great talk--very good to see all the examples. I already knew graph databases conceptually but hadn't seen them in action--it was only then that those concepts were solidified and now I feel like I could get started using graph databases myself.
