This remarkable dataset represents the largest leak of offshore financial networks ever, at least 10 times bigger than theprevious largest leak. Luckily for those of uskeen to analyse this data, they made the data available as a ready-to-run instance

of the Neo4j graph database, with all data pre-loaded. In this presentation we'll show you how to download and run this database, and how to perform various queries using the Cypher query language to gain insights into the structure of the offshore financial networks used by people and corporations around the world.

And don't worry, you won't need to know Neo4j or Cypher, or even what the Panama Papers are. We'll introduce everything before pulling out the Cypher queries!


Craig Taverner is an open source softwaredeveloper, technology enthusiast and entrepreneur working on many kinds of projects, especially those involving GIS and Neo4j. For the last two decades he has been working in telecoms startups, managing development teams in Europe and Asia. His most recent startup was a customer of Neo4j since 2009, and for the last two years Craig has been working within the Neo4j development team, focusing on Cypher, Spatial and Security.

This event will be held in English and it's free to attend although there's limited seating.
