Upcoming Events:

New! Graph & Beyond Lunch Series

lunch sessions

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. 

Tuesday, 9th February 2021 -10:00am PT / 1:00pm ET / 7:00pm CET

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
