Graph Database events @ the European Data Innovation Hub

You are welcome to join the free hands-on session on Sept 10th or the full day training on Sept 24th on Graph databases Neo Technology with Rik Van Bruggen at the European Data Innovation Hub in Brussels.

The Data Science Community

neo4j_logo_globeWe are very happy to announce that, starting this fall, we are going to start some nice collaborations between the Belgian Graph Database Community and the European Data Innovation Hub. We have already planned two activities together:

  1. On September 10th, we are going to do a free hands-on introduction to Neo4j meetup. This 3-hour session will give you the basics of Graph Databases, and will also allow you to get your hands dirty with the technology using a demonstration dataset. Bring our own laptop – and have some graphtastic fun! Please register on Meetup for this event!
  2. On September 24th, we are going to be hosting a full-day training session at the Hub in Brussels. This is a paid-for training provided by professional instructors and using official Neo4j material. Please register and pay for it on the Eventbrite site. More details can be found there.

Registrations for Data Science and Big Data training programmes are now open.

The European Data Innovation Hub organizes with its partners a full serie of Data Science and Big Data training programmes.

You can expect

  • a series of executive training to support your management in understanding the benefits of analytics
  • a series of coached MOOCs on machine learning and big data technology
  • a series of hands-on training on the different datascience technologies

All members of the European Data Science and Big Data communities are welcome to use our Brussels based professional facilities to give their training. The members of the hub will promote your training and include it on our e-learning platform for further use.

Here is an overview of the trainings that we have already scheduled for the coming months:
