GraphConnect 2012: Exploring Innovation with Connected Data
- First GraphConnect conference announced for November 5-6, 2012 in San Francisco
- Researchers worldwide are finding new ways to make sense of connected data
- Neo Technology demonstrates momentum with thriving ecosystem of global partners and growing Neo4j community
GraphConnect 2012 is the first conference to focus on the rapidly growing world of graph databases and their applications making sense of connected data. Graph thought leaders from many disciplines and organizations will come to explore new ideas, share innovations in graph technology, and make connections with researchers and developers from around the globe.
Graph thought leaders such as James Fowler and leading researchers from ThoughtWorks, Twitter, FiftyThree, Squidoo, Adobe, Telenor, and Neo Technology will present their applications and architectures. VMware’s SpringSource division, ThoughtWorks, and Heroku are sponsors of GraphConnect 2012.
This conference will take place on November 5-6, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco. GraphConnect will feature sessions for attendees of various technical levels. There will be sessions for executives and visionary leaders about the applications and risks of graph technology. Technical sessions include demonstrations, hands-on labs and tutorials, industry partner technology showcases, and customer case studies.
Featured speakers include:
- Rod Johnson, founder of the Spring Framework and SVP, Application Platform Strategy at VMware
- James Fowler, Co-author of Connected: The Surprising Power of Our Social Networks and How They Shape Our Lives
- Rebecca Parsons, CTO of ThoughtWorks
