This course explores a variety of Cypher queries that go beyond simple reads and writes. The course also involves identifying complex patterns and combinations of data in nodes and relationships. Begin with a deep dive into querying for patterns in relationships. Move on to the operation of finding the shortest paths between two nodes in a graph structure. Next, explore queries based on the properties of nodes or relationships, where you will look for elements matching a single criterion as well as multiple criteria defined using logical operations. Following that, explore some of the fundamental aggregation operations which can be performed on data using the Cypher language on both text and numeric data. Finally, discover how to order query results and limit their size using the LIMIT and SKIP clauses. Upon completion, you'll know how to apply graph-specific and generic database features to analyze a Neo4j database using the Cypher language.
