This Week in Neo4j: JavaScript CRUD Apps, Personalized Recommendation Engines, Graph Theory Tutorial

This week, we've got real-time food and event recommendation engines, a JavaScript OGM, a Neo4j Operational Dashboard, and more!

Download "Why Your MySQL Needs Redis" and discover how to extend your current MySQL or relational database to a Redis database.

Welcome to this week in Neo4j, where we round up what's been happening in the world of graph databases in the last seven days.

This week, we've got real-time food and event recommendation engines, a JavaScript OGM, a Neo4j Operational Dashboard, and more!

Featured Community Member: Meredith Broussard

This week's featured community member is Meredith Broussard, Assistant Professor at New York University, with a focus on data-driven reporting, computational journalism, and data visualization.

Meredith has presented Neo4j workshops at NICAR 2017, showing attendees how to find connections in campaign finance data, and again in 2018, this time with a focus on social network analysis.

On behalf of the Neo4j and data journalism communities, thanks for all your work Meredith!

Recommendation Engines for Food Recipes and Events

This week, we have two stories about real-time recommendation engines: a use case where graph databases excel.

Irene Iriarte Carretero, last week’s featured community member, was interviewed by diginomica after her GraphTour London talk last week.

Irene explains how Gousto is using Neo4j to build a personalized recipe recommendation engine that takes “the subjective aspect” of cooking into account.

Suprfanz’s Jennifer Webb presented Data science in practice: Examining events in social media at the Strata Data Conference in San Jose.

In the talk, Jennifer shows how to build a recommendation engine for event promoters, starting from the community graph and using graph algorithms to find influencers. You can download the slides from Jennifer’s talk.

Geek Out: Graph Theory Tutorial

I came across Michel Caradec’s excellent workshop about implementing graph theory with Neo4j.

Michel set himself the challenge of implementing graph theory concepts using pure Cypher, and in the tutorial, he shows how to create random graphs, extract subgraphs, generate adjacency matrices, and more.

If you geek out on graph theory, you’re going to love this tutorial.
