  6. 6. Joe Depeau presented a webinar in which he showed how to model complex financial instruments with Neo4j. Joe explains the myriad of financial instruments, builds a graph of mortgage backed securities, and then shows how to explore the data using Cypher in the Neo4j Browser and visualise it using Neo4j Bloom.

  10. 10. I came across an old post written by JeffProd about solving a Rubik’s cube using Neo4j. In the post JeffProd shows how to model the problem as a graph, imports all possible positions for a Rubik’s cube use the neo4j-import tool, and then solves it using a shortest path query.
