18:15 Mark Needham - In a League of their Own: Neo4j and Premiership Football
In this talk, we'l look at how graph data and Neo4j can be used to model the English Premier League. We'll see how the graph model and Cypher query language makes it natural and fun to query multidimensional semi-structured data.
We'll also see how graphs encourage discoverability so that we can spot interesting correlations and become king of the arcane football facts (e.g. how many goals have been scored at grounds in the North West of England by players originating from South America) at your local pub quiz.
We'll also see what the graph model would look like if modelled in a relational way and show where the approach reaches its limits and the graph addresses and resolves those challenges.
