This week we work out the best tennis player in the world using weighted PageRank, we learn how to do backups on Kubernetes, and how to model financial risks. We also have a great story about using Neo4j to store the storylines of an interactive Theatre Production, and there’s the launch of the Graph Gallery Graph App.
