Nicole grew up in Kansas City, Missouri and then spent four years at LSU in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where she got a degree in economics with a minor in mathematics. She then went to the University of Texas at Austin where she got her masters degree in analytics, and it was during this time that she found Neo4j and began playing around with it. When she's not graphing all the things, she spends her time playing card games and board games.
This session is a high level introduction to graph databases. We'll start with an overview of Neo4j including why graphs matter, and then review the difference between relational and graph models. Nicole also demonstrates the power of graph databases like Neo4j to query connected data using the Cypher Query Language.
