An Introduction to Doctor Who (and Neo4j)

A session at Strange Loop 2011

Monday 19th September, 2011

10:30am to 11:20am (CST)

Doctor Who is the world’s longest running science-fiction TV series. Battling daleks, cybermen and sontarans, and always accompanied by his trusted human companions, the last Timelord has saved earth from destruction more times than you’ve cursed Maven.

Neo4j is the world’s leading open source graph database. Designed to interrogate densely connected data with lightning speed, it lets you traverse millions of nodes in a fraction of the time it takes to run a multi-join SQL query.

When these two meet, the result is an entertaining introduction to the complex history of a complex hero, and a rapid survey of the elegant APIs of a delightfully simple graph database. With a data store packed full of geeky Doctor Who facts, we’ll have you answering questions of the Doctor Who universe like a die-hard fan.
