This year marks the 5th anniversary of GraphConnect San Francisco and it’s going to be the biggest graph technology event ever. Whether you’re new to the world of graph databases or you’re a seasoned vet, there’s something new for everybody at this year’s 5-year anniversary event.
On October, 13 at GraphConnect San Francisco 2016, Neo Technology announced the release of their namesake Neo4j 3.1 database, focusing on scale and developer productivity. In the keynote, CEO and co-creator of Neo4j, Emil Eifrem announced that the new version of Neo4j is far more scalable than it had been in the past, with a view to looking at the future of particularly the internet of things when billions of devices are connected. Neo4j aims to be able to represent those connections, and the storage system has been rearchitected to massively increase some of the hard-limits for number of. Emil observed that today there are around 50 billion devices connected to the internet, and that by the end of this decade the number of connected devices will rival the number of neurons in a human brain.

The conference would feature sessions that include technical deep dives for intermediate and advanced developers, business and technical case studies and “getting started” sessions.
In this conference, the agenda is well planned out, with keynote and breakout sessions that will appeal to developers and business leaders. They will cover real-world use cases that show how graph databases can help address many of today’s largest data challenges.
Especially, Bitnine spent plenty of time with Neo4j associates such as Cypher engineer and consulting manager. In this meeting, we discussed open source projects in progress and how Bitnine can contribute as member of Cypher open source. Neo4j was delighted and explained their vision and plans in the future. As the leader in the graph community, Neo4J is dedicated to fostering data innovation. Their Cypher query language is available as open source. And they are again sponsoring GraphConnect 2017 in Europe. Bitnine promised that we will come away with good idea to help improve their vision as official partnership member.
