ArangoDB Dev Days: Available On-Demand


Last month, we held our first-ever virtual developer conference: ArangoDB Dev Days.

We had a blast spending the week with the ArangoDB community, and are now even more happy to share that all five days of talks, including our hands-on workshops, are available on demand.

There’s a lot of content to sift through, so take your time, but we hope you enjoy learning more about what’s in store for ArangoDB.

Criando e analisando dados com AQL (AQL in Portuguese Notebook)

This week we are excited to show off a community notebook: ArangoDB & AQL in Portuguese!python DS

This notebook, submitted by GitHub community member Janio de Souza Lima (janiosl), walks you through getting started with ArangoDB and AQL in Portuguese. It’s a great place to get started with ArangoDB and Python. 

A word from Janio:

Este notebook foi desenvolvido por Janio Lima como parte das atividades do mestrado em Ciência da Computação com ênfase em Ciência de Dados do CEFET/RJ, onde sou orientado pelo Prof. Eduardo Ogasawara, mas recebeu sugestões dos colegas Cristiane Géa e Tácito Araripe, bem como foi originado a partir de desafios propostos na disciplina Banco de Dados, ministrada pelo Prof. Jorge Soares, no referido curso.

Conteúdos complementares em vídeo para acompanhar cada sessão do notebook, bem como estudar aspectos adicionais do ArangoDB estão disponíveis em meu canal do YouTube Python DS nos links a seguir:

* Mini Curso ArangoDB (AULA 01)
* Mini Curso ArangoDB (AULA 02)
* Mini Curso ArangoDB (AULA 03)
* Reprodução do Benchmark ArangoDB

Check out the notebook in our Community Notebooks section here, and be sure to open a PR to add your own!
