It also means that we are continuing to see all these awesome community stories pop up left right and center in the Neo4j "This week in Neo4j" developer newsletter. And so on our Graphistania podcast, we are going to continue talking about these on a monthly basis. So that's what we're doing - and I have again invited my friend and colleague Stefan Wendin to join me.
From the newsletter, we always select a few stories that we think will be more interesting and/or meaningful to discuss. This month, we found a number of them, and the interesting thing was that the graph-stories seemed to play at very different scales... The Personal, Corporate, and Society levels. Here are some of the ones we liked:
At the Personal scale
- Alex Woolford - Network analysis with Neo4j / Kafka / Zeek. Alex also has this really cool video on "Event driven parenting": if your kid is getting bad grades, that event will lead to no more PS4 network access :) ... Bit harsh - but still!
- IT centric example: Managing VMware infrastructure with Neo4j - great example of how to understand infrastructure dependencies in an IT environment with graphs.
- Business centric examples: Analysing online customer journeys in 3D and Using Augmented Reality to create an indoor navigation system with VIROREACT. This also reminded me of these examples of using Neo4j to build digital twins for wind farms and digital twins for subsea gas.
- Maybe one more - very specific to the graph world and totally optional: Keeping track of graph changes using temporal versioning. This references: Neo4j Versioner - they recently released version 2. I really like that.
So I think you agree that we had plenty of stuff to talk about. Let's get into that!
