Neo's open source Neo4j graph database delivers breakthrough performance in a wide spectrum of modern applications, from finance to social networking to geospatial systems. Using NoSQL graph databases such as Neo4j, enterprises can enable a new class of analytical capabilities that were never available with conventional relational databases.

In A Programmatic Introduction to Neo4j , two of Neo's leading technical experts offer an authoritative, comprehensive tutorial on Neo4j -- from the essential concepts and techniques underlying new graph databases, to the specifics of Neo4j solution architecture and development.

The authors combine basic theory with an extensive set of practical exercises designed to demonstrate how to achieve complex goals with Neo4j. Each exercise offers a "Koan-style" lesson where a specific part of the Neo4j stack is presented as a set of failing unit tests and sample solutions. The exercises gradually become more challenging until you are capable of implementing sophisticated graph operations with Neo4j. Coverage includes: the Neo4j tool chain, core API, indexing, graph algorithms, Spring Data Graph, and much more.
