Graph Fundamentals — Part 1: RDF

Graph databases are on the rise, but amid all the hype it can be hard to understand the differences under the hood. This is the first article in a four part series describing the fundamental technologies that graph databases use under the hood. Unlike most articles that you will come across, this is neither marketing nor is it a tutorial — it’s a warts and all description of their strengths and weaknesses — stuff I have learned over 20 years of pain and suffering, in the hope that I can help somebody else out there to avoid having to learn these lessons the hard way.
