Don’t Miss NODES 2020, the Largest Graph Developer Event of the Year

NODES 2020 is the virtual event of the year for graph database developers and data scientists – and for those who are curious to learn more about graph technology.

The Neo4j Online Developer Expo and Summit (NODES) is a free, one-day virtual conference loaded with highly technical presentations, delivered by experts from around the world on graph-related topics. This conference is on October 20, 2020 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EDT (12:00-21:00 BST).

What to Expect at NODES 2020

Last year, NODES 2019 featured 63 speakers from 15 countries, giving presentations on topics from graph technology for spatial data and GraphQL/GRANDstack to software analytics and construction applications. Over 4,600 developers attended from six different continents.

For this year’s conference, NODES welcomes over 70 speakers from all over the world with deep graph technology expertise in a wide range of topics, industries and skill sets, including presenters from organizations such as NASA, PayPal, Deloitte, GraphAware and more.

The day kicks off with a keynote presentation by Neo4j CEO and Co-Founder Emil Eifrem, who will share his take on the latest and greatest updates in the graph tech space. Emil likes to preview new features of the Neo4j graph data platform, so watch out for some product news and updates in his morning presentation. He’ll also be briefly addressing the role that the Neo4j graph database played in the recent FinCEN Files investigation published by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) which first broke on September 22.

After Emil’s presentation, the conference will split into six different tracks for attendees to choose from, including:

  • Graph Technology Use Cases
  • Graph Data Visualization
  • Knowledge Graphs
  • Graph Data Science
  • Building Graph-Powered Applications
  • Technical Deep Dives

If there’s a graph-related topic you’re interested in – or are curious to learn more about – then NODES 2020 has a session for you.

The Graph Technology Ecosystem at NODES 2020

Google Cloud is the headlining Platinum Sponsor of NODES 2020, and they’re joined by a host of other sponsors from both inside and outside the graph technology industry. Event attendees will be able to learn more about sponsors and engage with them in virtual spaces throughout the conference day.

In addition to business sponsors, NODES 2020 brings together over 56 community partner organizations from around the world, including groups such as Data Science Salon, AI Kenya, PyLadies Ghana, DataFest Tbilisi, Spain AI, Data Philly, and Lagos Women in Machine Learning and Data Science, among many others. The depth and diversity of this year’s NODES partner organizations illustrates just how global the graph technology movement truly is.

Exclusive Advanced Training for Neo4j Certified Professionals

In addition to the conference, six virtual training sessions will be available to all existing Neo4j Certified Professionals. The exclusive advanced training sessions are free and will be held prior to the summit and recorded for those who cannot attend live.

Prospective attendees must be Neo4j Certified for access to these advanced-level training sessions. If not already certified, developers can take the free exam today. (The exam length is approximately one hour.)

Registration links for the sessions will be emailed to all Certified Professionals closer to the training dates, and will also be accessible via the private Certified Professionals group on the Neo4j Community site.

Training sessions will be held 10:00-14:00 EDT (14:00-18:00 BST) on October 6-8 and 13-15.
