Session: “The Challenge of Connected Data”

  • Presented by Dr. Jim Webber, chief scientist at Neo Technology
  • Monday, October 1st, at 10:20 a.m. CEST local time
  • Located in Rytmisk Sal, Musikhuset

Abstract: In this talk we’ll take a broad look at NOSQL databases, with a focus on the characteristics of graph databases for managing connected data and the kinds of problem domains for which they are best suited. To reinforce how useful graph databases are, we provide a rapid, code-focused example using Neo4j covering the APIs for manipulating and traversing graphs. We’ll then use this knowledge to explore the Doctor Who universe, using graph databases to infer useful knowledge from connected, semi-structured data.

Panel Presentation: “The Århus 6″

  • Presented by Dr. Jim Webber
  • Monday, October 1st at 3:50 p.m. CEST local time
  • Located in Rytmisk Sal, Musikhuset

Abstract: Join Jim Webber in an analogy of a courtroom battle with the following case being presented: The people vs. The Aarhus 6 (6 of the biggest names in NOSQL and NEWSQL technologies or the accused as we like to call them!) Accused? Yes the terminology is a bit strong but in the name of role-playing they are accused of misinforming the general public with outlandish claims and not warning of potential “tradeoffs” that may be encountered when using these products. Join judge Aino Vonge Corry as she asks grills these powerhouses in database technologies.

About the speaker: Dr. Jim Webber is chief scientist at Neo Technology, where he works on graph database server technology and writes open source software. Jim is interested in using big graphs like the Web for building distributed systems, which led him to being a co-author on the book REST in Practice, having previously written Developing Enterprise Web Services — An Architect’s Guide. Jim is an active speaker, presenting regularly around the world.
