Session Description

Do you set up the Relationships Graph in the best way for the app you are building? In this session, we will examine a single custom app built using three different Relationships Graph techniques. We’ll investigate questions like:


How does the graph technique impact speed of development? How does it affect WAN performance? How does it change the scripts we write? If you feel anchored to one technique, this session could be right for you.
