Frank Cellar (https://twitter.com/fceller) introduces his ArangoDB which is basically a Document store (key, value) and uses a blueprint graph interface.
Interestingly he is doing his demonstrations on the DBLP data set which is highly relevant for Heinrich and my related work project which we are introducing in our talk.

ArangoDB has several APIs to interact with it they consist of:

  • available from JavaScript
  • RESTful HTTP API
  • Blueprint bindings (Gremlin support is available: nice!)

After playing around with the ArangoDB and Gremlin console Frank started to Introduce AQL (=ArangoDB Query Language). ArangoDB also consists of a traverser Framework.

After the talk I now know about the API’s of ArangoDB what I am missing is a benchmark against some other technologies. Still the technology looked very promising and I am sure we will have some looks at it.
