Have Graph Database your way

Dear Friends,

Due to unavoidable circumstances the event got postponed. It has been rescheduled on 3rd December, 2016. Let's welcome the new generation Database technology termed as Graph Database.

Graph is everywhere... You need to find the graph out. Where? In your application domain.

Graph Database is a new born in No-SQL arena. This 20th (20/11/2016) I am going to share my knowledge with community. Planned to have a 3 hour knowledge sharing session on Graph Database. To demonstrate the knowledge, planning to have Neo4J as a tool to demonstrate the Native Graph Data processing.

I found Neo4J as an interesting tool to play around. Surely, you will also feel the same.

As a developer I felt the following to be understood clearly to play around:

1. Modelling graph data
2. Change your mindset to graph data
3. Technology Perspective
4. Selection of tools
4. Installation of NEO4J and understanding usage of Neo4j
5. Basics of Cypher language
6. Connection with C#
7. Speech and planning about next session
This is not at all the agenda to be focused on. My session will focus highly on the understanding of yours, rather than completion of the topics. One more thing I want to mention that this session is not only for Dot Net developers or managers, friends from other technologies are also welcome.

Last but not the least, some interesting Rewards are also there on the card.

All you need to do is to click the mentioned link and register for the event. Please do that at earliest.

Hope to meet you all.

My Review on "Visual Studio 2012 and .NET 4.5 - Expert Development Cookbook"

Recipe does not mean just a preparation methodology or a tiny guideline to perform something. The term has a broader sense which helps the reader to mix appropriate contents and to come up with a fascinated product or something which the recipe has been crafted for.

Once again I felt the definition while going through the book named “Visual Studio 2012 and .NET 4.5 Expert Development Cookbookby Mr. Abhishek Sur.  This post is envisioned to give a neutral feedback about the book. From sources I came to know that Abhishek has started writing another title for VS 2013. Hope, next title will be updated with some more useful tips including the ones I am going to propose.

First, let me introduce the recipes Abhishek crafted chapter wise with a critique from my side.
