Data is everywhere—it’s just not very well connected, which makes it super hard to relate dataset to dataset. Using graphs as the underlying glue, you can readily join data together and create navigation paths across diverse sets of data. Add Elixir, with its awesome power of concurrency, and you’ll soon be mastering data networks. Learn how different graph models can be accessed and used from within Elixir and how you can build a robust semantics overlay on top of graph data structures. We’ll start from the basics and examine the main graph paradigms. Get ready to embrace the world of connected data!

Graphs provide an intuitive and highly flexible means for organizing and querying huge amounts of loosely coupled data items. These data networks, or graphs in math speak, are typically stored and queried using graph databases. Elixir, with its noted support for fault tolerance and concurrency, stands out as a language eminently suited to processing sparsely connected and distributed datasets.

Using Elixir and graph-aware packages in the Elixir ecosystem, you’ll
easily be able to fit your data to graphs and networks, and gain new
information insights. Build a testbed app for comparing native graph
data with external graph databases. Develop a set of applications under
a single umbrella app to drill down into graph structures. Build graph
models in Elixir, and query graph databases of various stripes—using
Cypher and Gremlin with property graphs and SPARQL with RDF graphs.
Transform data from one graph modeling regime to another. Understand why
property graphs are especially good at graph traversal

problems, while RDF graphs shine at integrating different semantic
models and can scale up to web proportions.

Harness the outstanding power of concurrent processing in Elixir to work with distributed graph datasets and manage data at scale.
