An Introduction to Graph databases and IBM Graph

23rd June 2016 in London at CodeNode

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from Building AI: Another Intelligence? and An Introduction to Graph databases and IBM Graph

A graph database is designed to help you answer questions about large or complex networks of inter-related data. They represent data as ‘vertices’, sometimes called ‘nodes’. The relationships between vertices are represented by connections called ‘edges’. Graph databases also store metadata or ‘properties’ about vertices and edges. Graph database applications came to prominence when modeling complex networks of related data, include modelling and applying social networks, constructing and developing recommendation engines, and ‘optimal route’ challenges such as finding the shortest path or solving the vehicle routing problem. In this session you'll learn how you can get started with IBM Graph to analyse your data.

An Introduction to Graph databases and IBM Graph

Mike Elsmore

Mike spends his days as Developer Advocate at IBM Cloud Data Services, using his time to share knowledge on rapid development and different databases. Most of the time he can be found in the middle of a prototype in some combination of JavaScript, server tech and odd APIs. Mike also happens to be an active part of the hacker subculture, taking part in hackathons and development conferences.
