You might have heard about graphs, but what if you already have a relational database? How do you incorporate something new? This session will show you how to translate part of all data from a relational format into a graph. We will cover the basics of migrating the model and practical steps for actually implementing it. We will walk through naming and case conventions for graphs, as well as some principles for a successful graph model. At each step, we will show live code for making this work in the real world. Come to this session to get concrete steps for graphing relational databases.
