Podcast Interview with János Szendi-Varga, GraphAware

Finally - managed to get out another episode of our podcast. Early February, our friends of GraphAware published a great blogpost about their view of the "Graph Technology Landscape". The main author János Szendi-Varga, was kind enough to spend some time with me on the phone talking about our industry and where it's going. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!


Here's the transcript of our conversation:
RVB: 00:00:03.184 Hello everyone. My name is Rik, Rik Van Bruggen from Neo4j, and here we are again recording another episode of the Graphistania, Neo4j graph database podcast. And today I have a special guest on the podcast all the way from the UAE in the Middle East and that's a very, very interesting person that did some amazing work recently with the graph database landscape. It's János Szendi-Varga. Hi János.

Podcast Interview with Amy Hodler, Neo4j

Yes! Another great interview for our podcast, this time with a great colleague of mine who has a big mind and many ideas around one of the most fascinating and under-used topics evah: Graph Algorithms and Artificial Intelligence. Amy Hodler has a lot to say on this topic, and is about to publish a fantastic new book on the topic together with Mark Needham. I think you will enjoy this one - even though it's a bit longer than usual. Here goes:

The Graph Technology Landscape Graph

Our friends at Graphaware, and specifically Janos Szendi-Varga created a fantastic overview of the Graph Technology Landscape in 2019. It's actually pretty cool:
There's lots of interesting data in there, which Janos put into a CSV file over here. I thought that was really cool, and took the data for a spin in a Google Sheet, and then modified it a little bit from there.

Next thing for me was to create a

Which I have now made available as an import script and a graphgist over here. You can explore the data in the deployed graphgist yourself, and figure out some of the hidden and not-so-hidden connections in the Graph Technology Landscape. 

Hope you will have as much fun with this as I had.

Cheers

Rik

Podcast Interview with Jess Mason and Jason Cox, Untiltled Folder

Yeah,  I think I am going to repeat myself. Another podcast that was long overdue waiting to be published. I interviewed my next guests middle of December 2018, and it's hard to believe that I only just MADE the time to publish the episode. My bad - again. It's another great chat though - so you should still listen and look at some of the very cool links included below - you will not regret it. Jess and Jason are doing some amazing stuff with Neo4j over in Philly, and check it out. Here it goes:



Here's the transcript of our conversation:
RVB: 00:00:26.434 Hello, everyone. My name is Rik, Rik Van Bruggen from Neo4j, and here I am, again, recording another Neo4j Graph Database Graphistania Podcast. And tonight I am joined by two guys from Philadelphia in the USA that have been doing some amazing work with Neo4j. And on top of that, they have the funniest company name, I think at least. It's called Untitled Folder. That's Jess and Jason. Jess and Jason, welcome to the podcast.

JM: 00:01:04.071 Hi. Thanks for having us on the podcast.

JC: 00:01:04.525 Hello.
