Neo4j Code-Golf –a gamified platformfor graph data enthusiasts, developers, and students alike to go head-to-head to write the shortest Cypher query on – you guessed it – a virtual golf course. Just like golf, where the least number of strokes wins, here in the Code-Golf challenge, the cypher query with the shortest length and the least number of db_hits wins!
It’s simple. First and foremost, to participate in the Neo4j Code Golf contest, you must register atdevpost, which is where you are now, and then go to theNeo4j code-golf platformto participate, preferably using same login as devpost for easier leaderboard management. The code-golf platform is fully automated, and you must write short Cypher queries based on the question to reduce the time and resources the query takes, eventually leading to a faster and more efficient query. In other words,the goalis to write shorter queries (in length) and achieve as few db-hits as possible with the Cypher queries, and the least the number of characters in the query are, and least the number of db_hits are for a Cypher query the higher you are placed in the leaderboard. Note that, lesser score from db-hits and shorter queries are placed up higher on the leaderboard. So a point of 10 will get higher place compared to point of 100, simple. In case of similar db_hits score the shorter query lenght will be placed higher in ranking. All entries must be submitted by September 15, 2022, to be eligible for consideration. Contest entrants must submit short Cypher queries with low db_hits to win the contest. Given the platform is automated and leaderboard based, every contestant can see their position in real-time on the leaderboard.
