Here’s a fantastic video covering the basics of the Neo4j Graph database being used from .NET, including a primer on Graph databases.  He shows how he built a ASP.NET MVC app, with a Neo4j backend, all running in Azure. This isn’t in POC; it’s a production system. Also, unlike most graph DB talks, it’s not a social network!

I love the cypher syntax,

Match me –[:LIKES]->activity<-[:LIKES]-person

Beyond fluent, it’s a pictorial language where you just draw arrows to represent a query.  Amazing.
