Hello Community,

Welcome to the fourth ArangoDB newsletter of 2022. This month, we invite you to:


Graph & Beyond Lunch Break #2.4: Graph vs. Relational

Our Graph & Beyond Lunch Breaks are back!

graph vs relational

In case you’ve never signed up for one, the Lunch Breaks are our way of providing some ‘snackable’ content for our community to enjoy on-demand. Each video is approximately 10-15 minutes and delivered directly to your inbox. 

Our next Lunch Break will explore the differences between relational and graph databases: what they are, what they do well, and when you should use one over the other.

Wednesday, April 6th 2022 – 12:00pm in your local time zone
