Podcast interview with Ben Nussbaum, AtomRain

Recently had the chance to chat to one of the Nussbaum-brothers, Ben more specifically. We've met eachother a bunch of times at various graph events over the years, and next week they will be at GraphConnect again presenting their latest and greatest services and products. So it was a great time to catch up and discuss their view on Graphistania and the rest of the graphlands. So here's our conversation:

BN: 00:15 Hi Rik, thanks for having me.

Here's the transcript of our conversation:

NR: 00:23 Hi, Rik. How are you?

GraphConnect Europe 2016 - of course we have a Schedule-graph

It's that time of the year again - GraphConnect Europe 2016 really is around the corner now. We have so much to look forward to - great users, community, customers, developers, engineers, speakers, founders - and everyone with a graphista-bone in their body is flocking to London on April 25th-26th. So of course, on this blog, I had to have some kind of little contribution to make - and traditionally (like I have done for many other conferences in different blogposts), I have to make an improvement on this "ugly" table:

This is: I really want to look at this data as a GRAPH - not a table. Of course, you say...

The GraphConnect Schedule Spreadsheet

In orde to do that, we create a nice little spreadsheet version of the schedule first. Simple, in a Google Sheet: here it is. It really is pretty simple:
