Announcing NODES 2019: Neo4j Online Developer Expo and Summit

Hey everyone!

We're super excited to announce this event-- our first global event exclusively for technical audiences.

On Thursday October 10th, we’ll be gathering developers from all around the world for the first-ever Neo4j Online Developer Expo and Summit (NODES)!

This amazing day-long event will bring insightful technical talks to you from Neo4j engineers and community members – all in an interactive format.

As an Active Community, We’ll Make this Event Interactive

Every regular session will have live chat for your comments and questions, and we’ll ask you as attendees to participate via video in the Q&A session.

There will also be a couple of Neo4j community activities around the event:

    1. A Global GraphHack: Yep, we’re taking our GraphHacks to the next level.
    2. Local In-Person Viewing Parties: hosted by the Neo4j community around the world.
    3. “The Hunger Games” – LIVE 5-Minute Challenges with Prizes: Questions during the event will be curated by world-renowned, Neo4j community-caretaker Michael Hunger.

To make sure that all your questions get answered, we’ll also have a few panels which will be entirely focused on graph technology Q&A. We’ll invite individuals and the local viewing parties to participate.

Register for NODES 2019 now to be notified as we release more details on the community activities.

What Kinds of Sessions Will There Be?

We’re going to keep this event very technical, with many of the sessions delivered by Neo4j experts on graph-y topics.

There will be keynotes, regular sessions, lightning talks and the mentioned Q&A panels. We will run the event with multiple tracks, so that at any given time, there will be an interesting talk for you.

Additionally, we’re inviting all developers in the Neo4j community to submit talks on technical topics: from graph-powered AI and machine learning to engineering the inner-workings of amazing recommendation engines.

While we love case studies, we do ask that presentations be technical, focusing on the “how” and showing code, graph data models, Cypher queries and discussing best practices and lessons learned.

Submit your talks to our CFP using Papercall. We’re a very diverse community, and we thus highly encourage talks to be submitted by those typically underrepresented in tech.
