Cypher vs SQL: a declarative graph query language

Neo4j Öresund

FOOD: Yes

LEVEL: Intermediate

Cypher is a graph query language used in Neo4j. Much like SQL, it's a declarative language used for querying databases.

In this talk, Andrés Taylor, a former SQL DBA, will compare and contrast the two. What does an join look like in Cypher? What about an left outer join? There are a lot of similarities between the two - Cypher is heavily influenced by SQL. We'll talk about what these common concepts are, and of course, we'll talk about the differences, what Cypher gives you that SQL leaves you wanting.



Speaker

Hi, I'm Andrés Taylor, lead Cypheriologist at Neo Technology, the company behind Neo4j. Making Cypher is my therapy after years and years of relational thinking and coding. I'm keen to show you how graph databases and Cypher can make your daily grunt a little bit easier.
