Solving Highly Connected Data problems with the Neo4j Graph Database
 – by Christophe Willemsen

We live in a connected world. There are no isolated pieces of information, but rich, connected domains all around us. Only a database that embraces relationships as a core aspect of its data model is able to store, process, and query connections efficiently. While other databases compute relationships expensively at query time, a graph database stores connections as first class citizens, readily available for any “join-like” navigation operation.During the presentation, you’ll discover what is a graph and a graph database, which problems it can solve, how to query it with Cypher, an expressive query language tailor made for graph queries and how to implement it easily in the Symfony Framework.

Deployment with Capifony 
– by Jan De Coster

How do you deploy your symfony app to a single/multiple server-setup? A shell script? Perhaps a git pull on the server? There are tools out there that can automate the deployment process and in this talk we focus capifony, learning how to make it useful for your application. We’ll go over the basics, the setup, the execution flow, the quirks and how to extend the tool to make it fit your needs.
