Been lurking around Neo4j for a while now, and took the plunge to go to GraphConnect 2018 in NYC last week. GraphConnect was an excellent conference. There was enough content to have a couple of great jam-packed days, but small enough to not get that "lost-in-a-conference" fog. I found myself very inspired by some of the presentations, and couldn't wait to get back home and start on some new projects!
My primary background is NOT in app/db development (more dev-ops for process/infrastructure management) But I'm diving into some Neo4j and starting to get my hands dirty. I have some MSSQL background, so I'll probably have an easier time with the data side, and be looking for some help to build the user-facing app front-ends.
Now I'm diving into building a service management decision support platform using Neo4j. (CRM, ticketing, and asset management). But some other projects I'm looking into are using Graphs for analyzing cyber security, connections, and traffic patterns.
Already using APOC to extend some JDBC queries, and exploring ideas to integrate to query Active Directory and Azure/Office365 to query users/groups/subscriptions/assets.
I have a lot of infrastructure background (Virtualization, Storage, LAN, MS/Citrix/VMware) and in the last few years have begun building security practices (particularly around the ForeScout product).
Looking forward to the community site and hope to contribute as I am able!
