Local, instructor-led live Neo4j training courses demonstrate through hands-on practice how to model, manage and access your data in a live project. We contrast and compare graph databases with SQL-based databases as well as other NoSQL databases and clarify when and where it makes sense to implement each within your infrastructure.
Neo4j training is available as "onsite live training" or "remote live training". Onsite live training can be carried out locally on customer premises in South Africa or in NobleProg corporate training centers in South Africa. Remote live training is carried out by way of an interactive, remote desktop.

Beyond the relational database: neo4j
The trainer did bring some good insight and ways to approach developing a graph database. He used examples from the slides presented but also drew on his own experience which was good.
Relational, table-based databases such as Oracle and MySQL have long been the standard for organizing and storing data. However, the growing size and fluidity of data have made it difficult for these traditional systems to efficiently execute highly complex queries on the data. Imagine replacing rows-and-columns-based data storage with object-based data storage, whereby entities (e.g., a person) could be stored as data nodes, then easily queried on the basis of their vast, multi-linear relationship with other nodes. And imagine querying these connections and their associated objects and properties using a compact syntax, up to 20 times lighter than SQL. This is what graph databases, such as neo4j offer.
In this hands-on course, we will set up a live project and put into practice the skills to model, manage and access your data. We contrast and compare graph databases with SQL-based databases as well as other NoSQL databases and clarify when and where it makes sense to implement each within your infrastructure.

Heavy emphasis on hands-on practice. Most of the concepts are learned through samples, exercises and hands-on development.
