Building Neo4j Applications with TypeScript


Course Description

In this course, you will learn to interact with Neo4j in your TypeScript project using the Neo4j JavaScript Driver.

You will learn about the TypeScript-specific features, which add type-checking to any interactions with a Neo4j instance.

We also offer the Building Neo4j Applications with Node.js, which takes you step-by-step through how to build a movie recommendation website.


By taking this course, we assume you have a working knowledge of TypeScript and NPM. We also assume that you have at least a basic understanding of Neo4j.

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

Code Challenges with GitPod

The challenges in this course use a service called GitPod to issue code challenges. To use GitPod you must sign in with your GitLab, GitHub or Bitbucket account.
