On behalf of the Neo4j community thanks for all your work Sylvain!
Online Meetup: Building Conversational Experiences with Amazon Alexa and Neo4j
Graphing metaphors, Building a Source Code Schema, GraphQL and GoT
- Markus Harrer continued his series of posts showing how to use jQAssistant and Neo4j for software analytics. This time he shows how to build higher-level abstractions of source code
- Michael Hunger wrote Importing Mapping Metaphor into Neo4j, in which he explained how to create a graph of metaphoric connections of the English language and run graph algorithms against it. Michael also created a short videoshowing how to import the data into Neo4j.
- The video of Michael Hunger’s talk from the GraphQL Berlin meetup – A Game of Data and GraphQL – is now available. Michael shows how to build a GraphQL schema on top of data loaded from An API of Ice and Fire, load and clean the data using APOC procedures, and then write queries in GraphiQL.
- In Better Data Import with GraphQL Michael Hunger explains the graphql-cli-loadtool he’s built to make it easier to load data into GraphQL backends.
- Marco Falcier released v1.3.0 of neo4j-versioner-core, a collection of procedures to help developers manage versioned graphs. This release contains several new procedures to make it easier to do common operations. If you haven’t seen neo4j-versioner-core, don’t forget to watch Episode #19 of the online meetup which covered this project.
- Adam Hopkins has written up his experience building an application using GraphQL, Neo4j, and Django.
Neo4j, Fraud Detection, and Python
The video contains a mix of talks in English and Italian – the one in English is about 50 minutes in so if you’re language challenged like me you’ll want to skip forwards to there.

That’s all for this week. Have a great weekend!
