Session Title: Introducing Graph Databases With Azure Cosmos DB
Speaker: Will Velida

Abstract: Graph databases are an absolute game changer when it comes to storing our data! Data in the wild the more naturally connected than we might force it to be in a traditional relational database. However, you may not even know what a graph database is and how you can get started building one!

In this session, I’ll cover the basics of what graph databases are and how we can build a graph database in the cloud thanks to Azure Cosmos DB’s Gremlin API. Then I’ll discuss how we can model our graph data in Cosmos DB, how we can query our data that’s stored in a graph database and how we might apply graph databases to a variety of different use cases.

By the end of this session, you’ll leave with an understanding of what Graph databases are, what you can use graph databases for and how we can use Azure Cosmos DB to build a graph database.
