2. 2. START user=node(1), other=node(2) MATCH (user) -[r1:has|wants]-> (thing) <-[r2:has|wants]- (other) WHERE TYPE(r1) <> TYPE(r2) RETURN TYPE(r1), TYPE(r2), thing
3. 3. Daniel Gasienica @gasi
4. 4. SO… JUST WHAT IS A GRAPH DATABASE?
5. 5. # adjacency list: nodes = List<Node> neighbors = Map<Node, List<Node>> neighbors[node1].add(node2) # adjacency matrix: nodes = List<Node> connections = Map<Node, Map<Node, bool>> connections[node1][node2] = true
6. 6. OKAY... LET'S TALK ABOUT WHAT WE LEARNED
7. 7. OUR USAGE NODE.JS + REST API + CYPHER
8. 8. WHAT WE LEARNED Unique, expressive relationship types
9. 9. WHAT WE LEARNED Unique, expressive relationship types Cache stats where possible
10. 10. WHAT WE LEARNED Unique, expressive relationship types Cache stats where possible Capture history through event nodes
11. 11. WHAT WE LEARNED Unique, expressive relationship types Cache stats where possible Capture history through event nodes First-class objects nodes, not rels
12. 12. WHAT WE LEARNED Unique, expressive relationship types Cache stats where possible Capture history through event nodes First-class objects nodes, not rels Connected data nodes, not props
13. 13. WHAT WE LEARNED Unique, expressive relationship types Cache stats where possible Capture history through event nodes First-class objects nodes, not rels Connected data nodes, not props Maintain linked lists for O(1) queries
14. 14. NEO4J 2.0+ Labels & constraints Relationship type grouping Transactional Cypher Automatic sharding?
15. 15. AND CHECK OUT... (MySQL) —[:TO]—> (Neo4j) A DBA PERSPECTIVE DAVE STERN @ 11:30
