To runs a system that turns people's homes and apartments into hotel rooms, Onefinestay CTO Jackson Hull and team went with a graph database called Neo4J to better map its inventory for guests. "J" stands for Java, but the team relied largely on Python.
Hull said his team interacted with Cypher and Neo4j, using software libraries specialized for use with Python, a preferred development language in the Onefinestay shop. He said his team has tapped into open source projects, and has in turn contributed software of its own back to open source as well. An example of that is a graph-based object framework for persistence built on top of Neo4j.
