Getting Started with OrientDB by Petter Graff.
From the post:
In my previous blog post I praised the open-source database Orient DB. I’ve received many email from people since asking me questions about Orient DB or telling me that they’d love to try Orient DB out but don’t know where to start.
I though it is time for me to contribute to the Orient DB community and write a short tutorial for exactly this audience. Ideally, I’d like to ensure that if you sit through the videos below, you’d at least have an informed view of whether Orient DB is of interest to you, your project and your organization.
Think of this blog post as the first installment. I may come back with some more advanced tutorials later. This tutorial shows you how to:
- Download and install Orient DB
- Play with the Orient DB studio and perform queries on the Grateful Dead database provided with the community edition
- Create your own database (again using Orient DB studio, perhaps later I’ll provide a tutorial to show how to do this from Node or Java)
- Create server-side functions
- Perform graph- and document-based queries over Orient DB
I hope this tutorial gives you a good idea of how Orient DB works and some of its power. I also hope it will help illustrate the reasons for my enthusiasm in the previous post where I argued the case for Orient DB. In this post I’ll focus on how you get started.
My only quibble with this post is:
I would assume only a percentage of the readers are familiar with Grateful Dead, so let me give you a few sentences about them.
Really? I guess it depends on what you mean by “percentage.” 1%? 2%
Excellent introduction! Forward and watch for future installments.
