Just before 2017 came to an end, I read this blogpost by my colleague Konstantin that was talking about how we were including an asynchronous API in our Java driver. That triggered my attention - I have always thought of the non-blocking characteristics of asynchronous systems to be very interesting for lots of different use cases. Just think of the difference between email (async) and phone (sync) communication - there's great use cases for both of them, right?
So I decided to try and get Konstantin on the phone, which he very graciously accepted. We had a great chat - which is what this next podcast episode is all about. Hope you enjoy!
Here's the transcript of our conversation:
RVB: 00:00:03.511 Hello everyone. My name is Rik Van Bruggen from Neo4j and here I am again recording another episode to our Graphistania Neo4j podcast. And this morning I've got a wonderful colleague of mine in Malmö, Sweden, on the other side of this Skype call and that's Konstantin Lutovich. Hi, Konstantin.
KL: 00:00:23.786 Hello, Rik. Thanks for having me here.
