Could you briefly introduce yourself? I am Peter Neubauer, founder and VP community at Neo Technology, the sponsor of the Neo4j graph database project. I have worked in a number of OSS projects and are very passionate about teaching programming to a broader audience, especially kids. I am really excited to be able to present at FOSDEM. For more info, please see my profile at http://www.linkedin.com/in/neubauer .
How did you get started developing software? I am not a programmer by trade. Instead, I got hooked on computers during my studies in economical engineering and through the MATLAB suite in my master thesis. I find programming very creative and inspiring, and love to bring prototypes and ideas to live. No hardcore programming for me, but lots of different mashups, experiments and languages.
What will your talk be about, exactly? My colleague and friend at Neo Technology, Alex Averbuch, is working with LDBC, a EU project aiming at investigating viable benchmarking infrastructure, data generators and guidelines for graph databases in order to find chokepoints, potential areas of improvements and maybe comparisons between different database systems. I want to present a very first overview after only 4 months work of a total project timespan of 3 years. We figure that this might be interesting to a number of academics and even developers.
Have you enjoyed previous FOSDEM editions? No, this is my first one, and I am really excited.
Is there anything else you want to add?
It will be great to meet up at FOSDEM, have some interesting talks and hang out. There are 2 neo4j meetups happening around FOSDEM - Thursday in Amsterdam, and Friday in Brussels. Join the fun and see you there!
Also, thank you Pere and the team for making the Graph Processing room happen!

Could you briefly introduce yourself? My name is Axel Morgner, I'm a father, husband, developer and entrepreneur. I'm located in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. In my former IT live, I was a consultant with Oracle before I founded inxire, a company in the field of Enterprise Content Management. In 2010, when I started a new CMS project just for fun, I met Peter Neubauer and was infected with the graph database virus.
How did you get started developing software? At the age of 11, I went to a computer course held in a local youth club by an enthusiastic hobbyist (he was a carpenter in fact). He tought us hacking first BASIC programs into an IBM PC. Later on, I was lucky to own an Atari ST to continue my coder career. ;-)
What will your talk be about, exactly? My talk will be about the lessons we learned from developing the CMS and REST framework named 'Structr' which is based on the graph database Neo4j. I will present different implementation approaches and data models, and how and why we changed it several times. If time allows, I will give a very short hands-on demo with the current version of Structr and explain the different components live.
Have you enjoyed previous FOSDEM editions? No.
Is there anything else you want to add?
I'm looking forward to meet interesting people in the Open Source space, and have some beers as well!

Could you briefly introduce yourself?
I am Rene 28 years old from Germany and a mathematician who is now doing a PhD Program in Web Science under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Steffen Staab. My PhD Topic is rather technical for a web science program since I am trying to solve top-k aggregation joins in graph data bases more efficiently.
How did you get started developing software?
I guess I am more like a coder solving algorithmic problems than a software developer but I guess you wanna here the following.
When I was about 9 years old my elder sister took a course in school learning TURBO PASCAL. I played around with her source code - not really understanding why it was doing what it did - and became more and more interested towards computer programming.
What will your talk be about, exactly?
We are currently creating this platform called related work (http://www.rene-pickhardt.de/related-work-net-product-requirement-document-released/) which is for scientists and is supposed to help to organize publications and make recommendations for papers. So you can already imagine it is some kind of social networking application together with strong recommender systems and information retrieval.
While planning this we had to take several design decisions to fit our needs. The talk will mainly be about those decisions which means the talk will contain a bit of everything. (benchmarking, design desicions, algorithms, lessons learnt (so far))
Have you enjoyed previous FOSDEM editions? Last year I have been speaking at graphdev room at FOSDEM about my hack for an efficient graph based system to deliver social activity streams like twitter or facebook. you find all the resources and the recorded talk in my blog at: www.rene-pickhardt.de/graphity
Is there anything else you want to add? Not only open source but also open access is really important for our society. There can't be a patent or copyright on knowledge. The pitty is that most people do not care or understand what happens if they sign a contract with a publisher. So it is you folks out there who decide what is supposed to happen with the cool stuff you come up with. Do you want to spread the knowledge and improve the world? If yes then share your knowhow provided with a free licence.

FOSDEM is the biggest free and non-commercial event organized by and for the community. Its goal is to provide Free and Open Source developers a place to meet. No registration necessary.
Since 4 years graph processing systems are gaining an emerging impact for processing complex semi-structured and interrelated data sets. Graph databases like Neo4j, Semantic Web and Linked Open Data approaches like the DBPedia project, and large-scale graph processing like Apache Hama encourage each one of us to think about our problems in graph like structures.
Inside this event there are run many developers rooms about different topics, this year we are having a graph processing room with talks all about graph
