Neo4J is rapidly becoming a force multiplier within organizations with highly connected data. The purpose of this talk is to enumerate the good, bad, and ugly that we have learned about Neo4J as we have deployed it within Square and made it a first class citizen. We will talk about the features that we find most important (and why) and custom development that we have had to do to make it work within our infrastructure.
