  • Graph theory - origins and concepts
  • Benefits of graph databases
  • Different types of graph databases
  • Typical graph database API
  • Programming basics
  • Use cases
Bring your laptops for a hands-on opportunity to practice some sample codes. A basic understanding of Java programming is a recommended prerequisite to understand this course. This session is led by the InfiniteGraph technical team and the demonstration code will be drawn from InfiniteGraph examples, however the broader educational presentation is product-neutral and not a commercial presentation of their products.

To participate in the hands-on portion of the graph tutorial users must have:

  • Java programming experience
  • Java Developer Kit (JDK)
  • Current InfiniteGraph installed on laptop. (To download visit
  • HelloGraph test – Upon installing IG, run HelloGraph to test the install. (HelloGraph can be found online at )
