Case Study: Neo4j in a .NET world
This year, a small team of developers, led by Tatham Oddie at Readify, delivered a ASP.NET MVC app, with a Neo4j backed, all running in Azure. This isn’t in POC; it’s a production system. Also, unlike most graph DB talks, it’s not a social network!
In this video you’ll hear the stories of:
- what our project is, why we chose a graph db, how we modelled it to start with and how our model was wrong
- how we deploy Neo4j in Azure
- how we diagnosed and fixed a performance problem that spanned the CLR, the JVM and Azure
- how we built our own Neo4j client for .NET, complete with a fluent interface and internal logic to serialize .NET – expressions into Groovy comparisons (It was only slightly scary.)
