The Past, Present, and Future of the Cypher Query Language

Neo4j Öresund


LEVEL: Intermediate

We will begin with meet and greet at 17.30. Presentation starts 17.45. There will be a break with pizza and beer around 18.30.


Neo4j's query language has grown from nothing to the most widely used language for querying graph databases in a little over four years.

Why do we need a new language? And what is the future for Cypher and graph querying in general?

In this talk, Andrés Taylor, the creator of Cypher will talk about the history of the language, why it was created in the first place, and where he thinks the language is going.


Andrés works at Neo Technology, working with the language design and compiler for the Cypher. After working as a SQL developer for over a decade, he thought he knew better, and joined Neo Technology to help the world make sense of data.

He is proud to be one of the most prolific Neo4j commiters (#3).
