August Tech meetups

Statewide Meetup: A Skeptics Guide to Graph Databases w/ David Bechberger


Our August statewide meetup will be on Thursday August 15th from 6:45 PM - 9:00 PM. Feel free to drop by around 6:30 to grab some food and socialize before the talk starts. As usual, we will have physical meetups in Anchorage, Fairbanks and Juneau.


Graph databases are one of the hottest trends in tech, but is it hype or can they actually solve real problems? Well, the answer is both.


In this talk, Dave will pull back the covers and show you the good, the bad, and the ugly of solving real problems with graph databases. He will demonstrate how you can leverage the power of graph databases to solve difficult problems or existing problems differently. He will then discuss a few failures to learn from. By the end of this talk, you will either be excited to use a graph database or run away screaming, either way, you will be armed with the information you need to cut through the hype and know when to use one and when to avoid them
