The Gremlins are attacking the Azure Cosmos DB

Have you got some data structures not playing well with the relational concepts? Data as it appears in the real world is naturally connected. Traditional data modeling focuses on entities and is not perfectly rendering this highly connected world. For many applications, there's a need to model both entities and relationships naturally. Azure Cosmos DB, with its Gremlin Graph API, supports this property graph model. During this session, you’ll learn the best use-cases and the great benefits of graph models but also how Azure Cosmos DB is supporting this. You’ll receive a good explanation of what’s TinkerPop and why it’s so important in the world of graph databases. The Gremlin language will be explained from the basics to some more advanced concerns in the form of recipes for common use-cases of graph databases!
