NorDev in January will be a little later than usual as the first Wednesday in January is the 1st of January and we suspect many of you will still be recovering from the night before. So NorDev will be on Wednesday 8th January. We have Aviva headlining and talking about an exchange programme they did with an Australian insurance firm who are very agile. Alongside Aviva we’ll be hearing from local firm Neontribe. Many of you will remember Harry Harrold from the question time event! We’re in for a very amusing evening!
Christmas Special with IBM: Hybrid Mobile ProjectAndrew Ferrier & Vladimir Kislicins
When: Wednesday 4th December 2013 @ 6.30pm
Where: Virgin Wines, 4th Floor, St James' Mill, Whitefriars, Norwich, NR3 1TN
The Norfolk Developers Christmas special is a double header on Mobile and IBM Worklight Best Practices from Andrew Ferrier and Vladimir Kislicins of IBM’s mobile division.
Hybrid Mobile Project - Best Practices and an Introduction to using IBM Worklight
We'll then move on to talk about the IBM Worklight platform, providing an introduction and describing how it can be used to built some of these types of application. We'll talk about a few Worklight-specific best practices, then demonstrate some of the applications we have built for customers using this technology, showing a little under-the-covers.
Half Day Workshop: An Introduction to the Neo4j Graph DatabaseIan Robinson
When: Wednesday 4th of December 2013, 1:00pm to 4:45pm
Where: The King's Centre, King Street, Norwich, NR1 1PH
This is a half day (afternoon) workshop prior to the main Norfolk Developers event in the evening. You must sign up separately for the evening event if you wish to attend.
Neo4j is a JVM-based, open source graph database. With the power to store and query billions of highly connected, variably structured entities, it is ideally suited to solving complex network- and graph-oriented data problems. Today, Neo4j is employed in business-critical applications in domains as diverse as social networking, recommendations, datacenter management, logistics, entitlements and authorization, route finding, telecommunications network monitoring, fraud analysis, and many others.
This tutorial will show you how to develop a Neo4j-based graph database application. With a mixture of architecture and hands-on coding exercises, you'll quickly learn how to design a graph data model, write queries, and incorporate Neo4j into a server or desktop application. Topics include:
- Introduction to Neo4j
- The property graph data model
- Database features
- Example use cases
- Creating and querying graph data
- Cypher query language
- Java APIs
- Building a graph database application
- Application architectures
- Data modeling
You don't need any previous experience of Neo4j to participate. You will, however, need some experience of Java, and a laptop with a Java IDE of your choice.
