I'm a developer living in the US Northeast.
I have been hearing about Neo4j over the last decade, since a few former colleagues joined the company. ( to Mark if you happen to see this.)
I've been interested in it again recently after modeling a data center data set with GraphQL, which got me more comfortable thinking about data in terms of graphs. Then I started working with a fraud related data set trying to track connections between accounts. I had access to a large PrestoSQL cluster, which had the grunt to do the processing, but the SQL itself just became more and more clumsy as I tried to add different types of connections.
I'm a programming language polyglot, but have most recently written Python, Go, Elm and Scala. And lots of SQL. I'm also interested in the possibilities for TypeScript on Deno.
