Abstract

Wanted to use Graph Database in your next project? Dgraph made it simple and easy to get started similar to MongoDB, MySQL and etc.

Outline

The Graph Database is has been there from a very long time with very restricted use as it requires a lot of time and effort to get started. The way data becoming more unstructured and fitting them in rows and columns is painful, NoSQL solves some problem but it kills the valuable relationship between data.

The Dgraph is a new Graph Database minimizing the time and effort requires to get started with a Graph Database or using a Graph Database as a primary database.

This talk is to get you a heads up about Dgraph as a database, how it can help you with your unstructured data and what it takes to use it in your next project.

    Ashok, upload draft slides and preview video by 15 April, latest so that we can complete evaluation of your proposal.

    • Ashok Vishwakarma (@ashokvishwakarma) Proposer 4 months ago

      Hi Zainab, I have added the draft slides please have a look and share your openion.

      • Zainab Bawa (@zainabbawa) Reviewer 4 months ago

        Thanks for sharing the slides. What is the key takeaway for the audience from this proposed talk?

        • Ashok Vishwakarma (@ashokvishwakarma) Proposer 4 months ago (edited 4 months ago)

          The main idea is to make the community aware of Dgraph and how simple and easy is it to get started with.

          Existing graphs are either single server architecture like Neo4j or they are hastily put together the graph layers on proper databases like Cayley, titanDB or DSCGraph. With no existing standards, companies have to build their own graph systems. For example, Facebook has FacebookTau, Google has NoedgeGraph, Twitter has FlockDB and Dropbox, Pinterest, Linkedin and etc have their own versions of graph layers.

          Dgraph is aiming to provide a fast and reliable Graph Database for the small and large companies which can scale horizontally in no time.

          The key takeaways for the audience are followings:

          • What is Dgraph and how easy it is to get started with?
          • How it compares to SQL and NoSQL databases.
          • When to use Graph Database and when not.
          • NodeJs Demo along with the dgraph-orm.

          Let me know if you any further questions.

          Looking forward to it.

    Hello Ashok. Question: Is draph-orm an ORM around dgraph-js (the official dgraph JS client) with the purpose of making it easier to get started with and use dgraph in JS? If so, are there any applications currently using dgraph-orm in production?
    Thanks.

      Hi Prateeksha, please find the inline answers for your questions.

      Question: Is draph-orm an ORM around dgraph-js (the official dgraph JS client) with the purpose of making it easier to get started with and use dgraph in JS?
      Answer: Yes - dgraph-orm is built on top of the official Dgraph JS client.

      Question: Are there any applications currently using dgraph-orm in production?
      Answer: There are few ongoing projects where we are using dgraph-orm they will be released in one or two months.

      PS: The weekly downloads of the dgraph-orm is 265 as of now so there are developers who trying the same.
