Happy New Year to our amazing community!
We hope your year is off to a good start. Even though things don’t seem too different (yet), we’re definitely feeling a fresh mindset and doing our best to stay hopeful and healthy.
Here’s what we’re excited about so far:
- Our new ‘Graph & Beyond’ Lunch Break series
- An upcoming webinar about Graph Analytics
- Our ArangoML blog series

New! Graph & Beyond Lunch Series
With most of us working from home, it’s important to take breaks throughout the day for mental clarity and rejuvenation. In order to keep in better touch with you all, we’re launching a new video series called ‘Graph & Beyond’.
Every week, various ArangoDB team members will share a topic they think our users would find interesting — different ways to use ArangoDB, new features we’re working on — in short 10-15 minute videos.
Sign up to have the video sent to your inbox at lunchtime each Wednesday here.
Webinar: Graph Analytics with ArangoDB
Many powerful Machine Learning algorithms are based on graphs, e.g., Page Rank (Pregel), Recommendation Engines (collaborative filtering), text summarization, and other NLP tasks. In this hands-on workshop, we will explore a number of use cases suitable for Graph Analytics — and in particular leverage ArangoDB’s Graph Algorithms Library.

ICYMI: ArangoDB 3.5 EOL
Per our EOL policy, support for ArangoDB 3.5 ended as of December 31, 2020 (ArangoDB 3.5 was released for General Availability on August 21, 2019). Current ArangoDB 3.5 Users are encouraged to upgrade to ArangoDB 3.7.
ArangoML Blog Series: Where Graphs and Machine Learning Meet
We have a new blog series introducing ArangoML and how it can help your machine learning pipelines. The first post introduces what ArangoML actually is: a set of tools and technologies that enable analytics and machine learning on graph data.
ArangoDB Feature Preview: Custom Pregel
In ArangoDB 3.8, we will introduce a more flexible version of Pregel, which will allow you to specify custom Pregel algorithms for a running ArangoDB cluster without having to write C++ code.
In case you missed our recent webinar where Jörg Schad, our Head of Engineering, and Heiko Kernbach, one of our Graph Engineers, gave an overview of the new custom Pregel support coming out in version ArangoDB 3.8, you can view the recording below.
Calling All Community Pioneers!
We are continuing our Community Pioneer program, the goal of which is to give back to our vast open-source community all around the world by spreading the word about your amazing contributions: blog posts, tutorials, projects, drivers that you are working on, etc.
Last year, we heard from:
- Oliver Bonnaure about his openresty project
- Aditya Mukhopadhyay on his Foxx Microservice RecallGraph
- Julien Grossmann on how reKnowledge uses ArangoDB to analyze risk and the chain of events that lead to a crisis

ArangoDB recognized as Leader on G2
We couldn’t be more thrilled to be recognized by our users as a Graph Database Leader on G2 Crowd.
Are you happy with how things are going with ArangoDB so far, and have a few minutes to spare? Then take a break from coding and write a review about your experience on G2.
We hope you enjoyed our latest news!
Until next time 🖖
