About

Neo4j is a graph database that allows you to model your data as a graph and find solutions to complex real-world problems that are difficult to solve using any other type of database.

This book is designed to help you understand the intricacies of modeling a graph for any domain.

The book starts with an example of a graph problem and then introduces you to modeling non-graph problems using Neo4j. Concepts such as the evolution of your database, chains, access control, and recommendations are addressed, along with examples and are modeled in a graph. Throughout the book, you will discover design choices and trade-offs, and understand how and when to use them. By the end of the book, you will be able to effectively use Neo4j to model your database for efficiency and flexibility.

Features
  • Model your data as a graph using Neo4j to design databases with minimum hassle
  • Discover new patterns using graphs and solve problems that are difficult to solve using any other database
  • Step-by-step guide to designing a graph model with pitfalls and design choices
