Graph Databases Exposed Video Released

New Release! The video of Chris Tite’s latest presentation on Graph Databases Exposed is available for streaming from the Instruct Video Channel.

Recorded on 10 July 2014 at the Benjamin Hotel in Durban, Chris introduced attendees to the concepts underlying Graph Database technologies and their application.

Relational databases have been the cornerstone of data centric systems for almost 30 years, serving as a trusty workhorse upon which many developers depend. Times, however, are changing and datasets are becoming larger and more complex. Business and users expect more flexibility and insight from their data.

With a worldwide movement to connectedness in applications (Facebook, Twitter, Linked In and many more), our trusty relational database model can’t be relied upon to manage complex connected datasets.

This has lead database technologists to find more effect technologies to manage their connected data. Graph Databases, a subset of NoSQL technology, provide a powerful mechanism to work with datasets where relationships between various entities are important.

In this session Chris covers:

• Introduction to graph databases.
• Compares graph databases to relational databases.
• Introduces Neo4j, a powerful open source graph database technology.
• Demonstrates a practical implementation of graph databases in .Net.

Thanks to all the Durbanites who made it to the lastest Instruct event at The Benjamin. Graph Databases Exposed was a tight ramp up for the attendees. Covering basic NoSQL elements all the way through to hands-on implementation samples, it was a detail packed session.

Talking to some of the guys from SA Home Loans, The Unlimited and Derivco it was a valuable primer for the uninitiated. If you didn’t get to make it to the event, then keep an eye out for the video recording that will get posted to the Instruct Channel in the next week or two.

Our next Instruct session will cover Domain Driven Design on 02 September 2014. If you are interested in attending feel free to drop an email to events@kaleidocode.co.za to get an invite.
