Antwerp Meetup: Intro to Graph Databases.

Event Info
Location: Archimiddle, Veldkant 33a, 2550 Kontich, Belgium
Lots of people – specifically IT architects, project and IT managers – have contacted us to get an “introduction” style presentation with regards to graphs and graph databases.

During this session, we will present, demonstrate and discuss the initial graph database context for people not necessarily familiar with the subject. Afterwards, we will have the opportunity to network over a light lunch.

Stockholm Meetup: Un-Meetup

Event Info
Location: TBD, Stockholm, Sweden
In this meetup we don’t have a fixed talk or lab schedule. Instead we will try some thing new and fluid. (hence the name Un-meetup). We split into groups and discuss/collaborate on issues that interest us. Potential groups are 1) Neo4j beginner, up and running ( aka baby steps) 2) Data modelling and Cypher (aka for data nerds) 3) Neo4j in production (aka war stories) 4) Lets make some thing in the few hours (aka hacking) This list is just a suggestion (we can refactor this list, so please comment). The idea is that people who are already familiar with basics can go to the next step, while new folks get a welcome introduction. Date and venue for this meetup are not fixed yet, but will be before end of this year. Let’s start 2013 with a !
