Beyond the Relational Database: Neo4j Training Course

Course Code

neo4j

Duration

21 hours (usually 3 days including breaks)

Requirements

  • An understanding of database concepts
  • Some programming experience

Overview

Relational, table-based databases such as Oracle and MySQL have long been the standard for organizing and storing data. However, the growing size and fluidity of data have made it difficult for these traditional systems to efficiently execute highly complex queries on the data. Imagine replacing rows-and-columns-based data storage with object-based data storage, whereby entities (e.g., a person) could be stored as data nodes, then easily queried on the basis of their vast, multi-linear relationship with other nodes. And imagine querying these connections and their associated objects and properties using a compact syntax, up to 20 times lighter than SQL. This is what graph databases, such as neo4j offer.

In this hands-on course, we will set up a live project and put into practice the skills to model, manage and access your data. We contrast and compare graph databases with SQL-based databases as well as other NoSQL databases and clarify when and where it makes sense to implement each within your infrastructure.

Audience

  • Database administrators (DBAs)
  • Data analysts

  • System Administrators
  • DevOps engineers
  • Business Analysts
  • CTOs
  • CIOs

Format of the course

  • Heavy emphasis on hands-on practice. Most of the concepts are learned through samples, exercises and hands-on development.
