Real-world experiencePractice in a live, pre-configured sandbox environment.


Neo4j is a graph data DBMS that lets you build efficient and reliable graph data solutions. By using Cypher, its powerful language, you can both perform DDL and DML operations. You can define and handle the most important resources you find in a graph: nodes and edges. You can also attach properties to these resources, so what you will reach will be a property graph.

The playground is a safe and secure sandbox environment for you to explore your own ideas, follow along with Cloud Academy courses, or answer your own questions all without the need to install any software on your local machine. The extended duration of this playground provides you with ample time to play to your heart's content. The goal is to be able to experiment and learn with little start time or overhead. Feel free to experiment with creating graph data resources such as nodes, edges and properties related to these resources. Also, you can perform how many queries you want on the data you create. You will have access to the Neo4j web application where you can perform all the operations from.

Intended Audience

This lab is intended for:

  • Data engineers who want to fully experiment graph data knowledge
  • Developers that are curious about setting up and using a Neo4j environment


To get the most out of this playground, you should have completed the following Neo4j labs:
