In 1736 Leonhard Euler established the foundations of Graph Theory the basis of Graph databases when he was challenged by the citizens of Konigsberg to solve a problem with the layout of their city.
I have had an interest in Graph databases for a while. In fact, a couple of years ago I presented a session on Graph Databases and Neo4j in particular at the DNN Con conference held in West Palm Beach. Graph Databases fill an important place in the array of Database options, both relational (SQL) and non-relational (NoSQL), available to us as developers. But what are Graph Databases? And what are the Graph Database implementations available to us. In this series of blog posts I will explore these topics in some detail and I invite you to join me as I learn about this important topic in the age of Social Media.
