Building Neo4j Applications with Go

Course Description

In this course, we walk through the steps to integrate Neo4j into your Go projects.

We will follow the steps to create an instance of the Neo4j Go Driver, learn how to use sessions and transactions, and use that knowledge to replace hardcoded API responses with data from a Neo4j Sandbox instance.

The project also serves a pre-built Single Page Application (SPA) that calls the API. As you work through the course, you will replace the hardcoded API responses with data from Neo4j.

The course automatically creates a new recommendations sandbox within Neo4j Sandbox that you will use throughout the course.

Prerequisites

By taking this course, we assume that you have a working knowledge of Go, dependency management with pkg.go.dev and wider Go ecosystem. We also assume that you have at least a basic knowledge of Neo4j.

If you haven’t already done so, we recommend that you also take the Neo4j Fundamentals course in on order to gain a basic understanding of Neo4j and the Cypher Fundamentals to understand how to query Neo4j using Cypher.
