A Humane Presentation about Graph Database Internals

YOW! 2020 Auckland

Databases are everywhere, but did you ever wonder what goes on inside the box? In this talk we’ll dive into the internals of Neo4j - a popular graph database - and see how its designers deal with common functional and non-functional requirements. In particular we’ll see how data is stored safely and queried performantly by understanding the way Neo4j makes use of the network and file system. So if you’re a curious person looking for a humane and light-hearted introduction to database internals and distributed systems, this talk is for you!
