Chris Skardon - Graph Databases: What and Why?
We live in an increasingly connected world with increasing amounts of data. For the last 20 plus years we've been storing that data in relational databases which have done admirably, but as our connections increase, and our world gets more and more complex we need to look to specialist databases to help us make sense of our connected data.
This talk aims to introduce you to the shiny world of Graph Databases via Neo4j and hopefully you'll see not just what they are but what you can use them for.
Chris is a freelance software engineer specialising in Neo4j and .NET. He has worked in a variety of industries from Finance to Property and a variety of organisations from Start ups to established Enterprises (and those in-between).
