Counting down to GraphConnect San Francisco 2015

Yey! Tomorrow is GraphConnect - so it's going to be a high-day for me, for sure. Meeting with lots of wonderful customers and community members - it's going to be a great event.

Now as you may remember from GraphConnect Europe earlier this year, I have a little habit of creating "schedule graphs" - essentially the conference schedule as a graph. We all know the "tabular schedule" of course:

But I - naturally - want to look at this data in a more likeable format, ie. as a graph.

So I have a very simple way of doing that. I spend a half hour or so arranging the data into a google doc:

I then make it public and allow for it to be downloaded as a CSV file, and then grab Cypher to upload the data into a shiny new Neo4j database. The import script is very similar to the one that I created for Graphconnect Europe, and is now also available on Github. Just copy and paste these statements into your Neo4j database, and you will have the schedule graph loaded locally in seconds. The results looks something like this:

If you don't want to be loading the data locally, I have also created a little GraphGist page for you to play around with. You can find that over here.

Hope you enjoyed that, and look forward to seeing you today/tomorrow/thursday at one of the conference events!
