This first course in the path delves into the basics of the Cypher query language. You will learn about the creation of nodes, relationships between nodes, and how to search for simple patterns among them. Begin with a simple query with a CREATE clause in order to create a node. Build upon your query at each step, starting with an empty node, then creating nodes with properties and nodes containing one or more labels. You then move on to setting relationships between nodes. Define relationships between existing nodes in the database, and build nodes containing their own properties. All the while, gaining familiarity with the syntax of CREATE queries in the Cypher query language, how directions are set when defining relationships, and the rules and conventions around names for node labels and relationships. After completion of this course you'll know how to create nodes and relationships between nodes in a Neo4j database using the Cypher query language.
