Description & schedule

This event is co-hosted by our friends at: JS Monthly https://www.meetup.com/js-monthly/ GraphDB London https://www.meetup.com/graphdb-london/

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
  • Locate duplicates
  • 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. colour)
  • 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
