Roller Derby MMR test doc

As a roller derby ref I love looking at the stats.

I put this together to teach myself Neo4j a bit but also to get some decent stats out of a practise game.

Node Types

  • Skater: All of the skaters

    • Properties: Name and number.

MRDWC Neo4j gist

I’ve been watching the Men’s Roller Derby World Cup today so thought I’d get some info out of what’s going on.

Still ne to Neo4j so still learning and playing around with it to see what I can do with it.

Node Types

  • (Group {name:""})

  • (Team {name:""})

  • (Game {day:1, time:1000})

== Search for a book by its cover
Playing on the saying "Don't judge a book by its cover" I created this so that if you see a book online or in a shop but you forget what it's called you can find it by recalling details about the cover.
