Webinar Recording: ArangoDB Custom Pregel Feature Preview

Pregel, originally developed by Google, is a framework for iterative, distributed Graph Processing. It has been supported by ArangoDB for almost four years in the form of C++ algorithms. With the upcoming version 3.8 of ArangoDB, we will introduce a more flexible version of Pregel, which will allow users to specify custom Pregel algorithms for a running ArangoDB cluster without having to write C++ code.

Please note that this version is experimental at first and is intended to receive feedback from the ArangoDB community. In this webinar Heiko Kernbach, software developer at ArangoDB, and Jörg Schad, Head of Engineering, will provide an overview of the new custom Pregel support (which can already be tested using the latest nightly builds). We will have plenty of time at the end for an open discussion about a number of tradeoffs, interface options, and use cases.
