Book Description

Graphs have become increasingly integral to powering the products and services we use in our daily lives, driving social media, online shopping recommendations, and even fraud detection. With this book, you’ll see how a good graph data model can help enhance efficiency and unlock hidden insights through complex network analysis.

Graph Data Modeling in Python will guide you through designing, implementing, and harnessing a variety of graph data models using the popular open source Python libraries NetworkX and igraph. Following practical use cases and examples, you’ll find out how to design optimal graph models capable of supporting a wide range of queries and features. Moreover, you’ll seamlessly transition from traditional relational databases and tabular data to the dynamic world of graph data structures that allow powerful, path-based analyses. As well as learning how to manage a persistent graph database using Neo4j, you’ll also get to grips with adapting your network model to evolving data requirements.

By the end of this book, you’ll be able to transform tabular data into powerful graph data models. In essence, you’ll build your knowledge from beginner to advanced-level practitioner in no time.

What you will learn

  • Design graph data models and master schema design best practices
  • Work with the NetworkX and igraph frameworks in Python
  • Store, query, ingest, and refactor graph data
  • Store your graphs in memory with Neo4j
  • Build and work with projections and put them into practice
  • Refactor schemas and learn tactics for managing an evolved graph data model

Who this book is for

If you are a data analyst or database developer interested in learning graph databases and how to curate and extract data from them, this is the book for you. It is also beneficial for data scientists and Python developers looking to get started with graph data modeling. Although knowledge of Python is assumed, no prior experience in graph data modeling theory and techniques is required.
