Last week was the San Francisco stop of GraphConnect 2013. With more than 400 persons attending the conference, speakers from various places and industries and a great organization, it was a huge success. Linkurious was here to talk about graph visualization. We met some great people and received an award for most innovative graph application in visualization.
Graphs are changing the world
From the get-go, Emil Eifrem, the CEO of Neo Technology, set the tone with an inspiring keynote. From Glassdoor which is using a Neo4j graph the size of half of Facebook’s graph to help people find their dream job to telecom operators and Fortune 500 companies, graph databases are being used in more and more industries. It’s not just social networks! With the upcoming release of Neo4j 2.0 the pace of change is not going to stop and the businesses who are not thinking about how to leverage the connected data in their industry will get disrupted. A great reason to go out looking for ways to build better products and services using graphs!
It feels good to be part of an awesome community
