5 years ago I gave a talk "Neo4j worst practices - welcome to the dark side" at GraphConnect 2015. This "RELOADED" sequel touches common gotchas a graphista will discover sooner or later during her journey throught the graph space. "Graphdatabases and esp Neo4j are a super exciting technology enabling us to solve certain problem orders of magnitudes faster and cheaper compared to other persistence technologies. As with every new technology there is a learning phase in the beginning. Typically the learning curve with Neo4j is rather steep, productive code can be written after just a couple of days. Nevertheless you will fall in one or the other trap sooner or later. May it be data modelling, testing, configuration or tuning - all of them keep some surprises for the graph database rookie.

This talk will show ways to make sure to fall in all of these traps. The presentation of anti patterns is supposed to be informative but also humorous - maybe sometimes slightly sarcastic. This session will be rounded up by some andecdotes for customer projects and the open source community of Neo4j which I'm in close touch with for the last 8 years as field engineer with Neo Technology.

See https://neo4j.com/blog/dark-side-neo4j-worst-practices/ for a write up and recording of the original episode of this talk."
