Conference Day 2

Handling Highly Connected Data with the Neo4j Graph Database

11:00 - 11:55 Sunday 5th October

Graph Databases, on the other hand, are all about relationships. In this talk we will look at using the popular Neo4j graph database with PHP to build efficient relational data for OmNomHub: not your average recipe site.
