It's been a while, and I have missed you all. I am extremely stoked to announce GraphConnect, a conference that is all about graphs, and the graphs you find in your day to day life.
We have some great featured speakers lined up
James Fowler, Co-Author of Connected. His book Connected discusses the importance and impact of your social graph. Here's his interview with Stephen Colbert.
Rebecca Parsons, CTO of ThoughtWorks With more than 20 years of application development experience, Rebecca will present on today's evolving data, and how it can be used in today's modern society. Here's a video of one of her talks at QCon London
What:What is this conference about? It's about connecting and celebrating Graph's new relevance with modern data. GraphConnect SF is a place where developers, technical decision makers, and thought leaders alike will convene to celebrate modern data and its expanding connectedness, through graph databases, network analysis, social applications and open-source projects. Oh and we will also have a sweet After Party with food, drinks and a fantastic view.
GraphConnect will include Tutorials, an unConference, and some great presentations, jam packed into two days.
When:5-6 November 2012. Going to QCon SF? Perfect, you are in town to join us before.
Where:The Hyatt Regency downtown, with the After Party right across the street.

I don't see any reason why not. A Graph Conference is extremely fitting
for a company like Neo, where we value relationships just as much as the
nodes themselves. Also, with Neo4j being the world's leading database,
it makes sense that we are pioneering the graph space and its dialogue.
How:How can you participate? We have multiple ways you can get involved, based on your love for graphs.
