XN Logic’s Introduction to Graphs and Pacer training provides you with both an in-depth background ofgraph databases as well the practical skills required to truly master graph traversals. The course is both hands-on and theoretical, with an emphasis on providing you with a working data-services layer built on the graph. Course OutlineIn Introduction to Graphs and Pacer – we introduce graph database concepts and how to use Pacer to traverse the graph and answer queries. This provides a way of understanding and manipulating graph databases and having your team deal with the nuances of interacting with a graph database rather than a standard RDBMS.
