Lightning Talk: Decyphering your graph model

The property graph — which is a midway point between many nodes holding no data, and one node holding all the data — is just an abstraction that saves us from the insanity that could otherwise ensue. But is this the only abstraction we can use? Sometimes it makes sense to look at your data from higher levels, using the language of the domain and leaving the nitty-gritty to those who actually need to understand it. This session is a quick look at one such layout where it's actually graphs all the way down.

A seasoned developer, he is now CTO and technology evangelist at a shiny new startup that's doing bad things to innocent graphs. Dom is an enthusiastic and impassioned speaker [read: he gabbles] who uses a blend of irreverent sarcasm and flippant humour to bring complex subjects to a broad audience. Whether or not they understand him is up for debate, but he likes to believe they do.
