Curator's Note: The following article was originally authored by Pernilla over at the Neo Technology blog.
We released the dates and cities for the first part of the Neo4j World Wide Tour.
Since the world has not collapsed, according to Mayan prophecy, we can go ahead!
The 2013 Neo4j World Wide Tour is officially on!
We’ll cover the East Coast, West Coast and South-West of the United States. In Europe we will visit the biggest cities like Stockholm, Paris, London, Berlin, Madrid, Hamburg.
We will be coding, learning, laughing and talking with you guys. We will be with you all over the place to spread graph love around the world.
As the world wide community manager I will be on every location we set up, just to talk to you and have fun.
Love your skill and teach it forward as the wise men say.
A Big Thank You to all people who have helped me organize these meetups. <3
