Viewing Contentful Data in Neo4j (Presentation & Hands-on Workshop)
A workshop to learn how to view contentful content model in a Neo4J graph database
Chris Eyre, a Platform Architect at Pottermore (The Digital Heart of the Wizarding World), will demonstrate a utility that he wrote to visualize and query Contentful (a headless, cloud hosted Content Management System) opening opportunities to:
Check content has been entered and published
Find orphan entries or images
Allow queries across content types (the Contentful content api is one content type at a time)
Count entries with a certain attribute (i.e. color)
Determine that a content type is unused
Determine that a field is unused.
Validate complex business rules (such as this field must have three of this entry attached)
If time permits, he will also demonstrate deploying this to a Graphene database hosted in Heroku.
For the workshop, you will need:
-A laptop -Neo4j installed (https://neo4j.com/download/) -Node plus your favourite editor -Git -A Contentful account (minimum of free tier)
Optionally: -A Heroku account with a credit card attached (it won't be billed for the demo) Heroku CLI
