TriPython March 2016 Meeting: Chasing Cats around the London Underground Using Python and Neo4j

Document Actions
Chasing cats is difficult. Public transportation is confusing. We will look at a simulation of a number of people trying to find their lost pet cat on the Tube. James Whisnant, a developer with the Carolina Population Center, will introduce graph databases and Neo4j in particular. He will introduce us to Cypher, the Neo4j query language and use py2neo, a python Neo4j binding, to modify a Neo4j database. You will visualize Neo4j database graphs in a web browser during the simulation while looking at Python code. Extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration are also welcome and don't need to be pre-announced. Lightning talks are for you to "show and tell" something you've learned about Python recently, no matter how small. We all use Python, therefore, we are always learning something new about Python that we can tell others. Please see the parking instructions on the BCC website. We will adjourn to an after-meeting at a nearby public house.
