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


Graph & Beyond Lunch Break #2.6: Graph Embeddings with AQL

graph embeddings with AQL

The terms graph embeddings and graph representation learning can be seen as synonyms to each other, where the key idea is to learn a mapping function that embeds nodes, or entire (sub)graphs (from non-euclidean), as points in low-dimensional vector space (to embedding space).

In this session, Sachin will put more light on this rapidly-growing area and its industrial and research applications. He will also demonstrate how we can leverage graph embeddings with ArangoDB’s AQL query language.

From the Blog: Integrate ArangoDB with PyTorch Geometric to Build Recommendation Systems

In this blog post, we build a complete movie recommendation application using ArangoDB and PyTorch Geometric. We tackle the challenge of building a movie recommendation application by transforming it into the task of link prediction. Our goal is to predict missing links between a user and the movies they have not watched yet.

From the Avocado Grove: We’re Hiring!

Team Avocado is continuing to grow! We have 20 open positions (almost all fully-remote) on our website across Customer Service, Engineering, Marketing, Product Management, and Sales.

Today we’d like to introduce you to Anastasia Soboleva, Documentation Team Lead. 

Anastasia Soboleva

Anastasia joined ArangoDB towards the end of 2021, bringing 13 years of technical writing experience to the Documentation Team. She earned her bachelor’s degree in communications and linguistics, and got into technical writing due to the unique blend – and challenge – of combining the written word with technology. Since joining ArangoDB she has led several initiatives for the Documentation Team, including automating documentation releases and documentation restructuring.

She joined ArangoDB due the huge potential she sees for graph-powered analytics and machine learning, and views the job of the Documentation Team to bridge the gap between the product and its users. She is currently hiring a software engineer and technical writer to help continue her mission to improve the customer experience with great content and a slick, fast and powerful infrastructure (or in the words of Daft Punk, “Better, Faster, Stronger.”).  

Whether it’s the Documentation Team or another department, we’d love to hear from you if you’re interested in joining Team Avocado! You can view all our open positions here.
