Register here: http://bit.ly/POSH0039

During this co-organized meetup by Pivotal and Neo4j (http://www.meetup.com/graphdb-sf...), Michael and Josh will show how easy it is to get started with Spring Data Neo4j using Spring Boot. We will introduce the Neo4j NoSQL graph database and the Spring Data integration library.

Michael will discuss the general approach used in Spring Data Neo4j and highlight the new features of the newly released version 3.0 which now works with Neo4j 2.0.

Using a practical example application which combines a lot of different technologies – Spring Boot, Spring Social, Spring Data Neo4j and Spring Data Rest – we will explore how they all come together to create an import and analytics application for tweets in just a few lines of code.
