Building Neo4j Applications with Node.js

Course Description

In this course, we walk through the steps to integrate Neo4j into your Node.js project.

We will follow the steps to create an instance of the Neo4j JavaScript Driver, learn about sessions and transactions, and use that knowledge to build a REST API with Express.js that will work with a pre-built Single Page Application (SPA).

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


By taking this course, we assume that you have a working knowledge of JavaScript, NPM and the Node.js 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.
