Neo4j: Cypher – Flatten a collection

Every now and then in Cypher land we’ll end up with a collection of arrays, often created via the COLLECT function, that we want to squash down into one array.

For example let’s say we have the following array of arrays…

$ RETURN [[1,2,3], [4,5,6], [7,8,9]] AS result;
==> +---------------------------+
==> | result                    |
==> +---------------------------+
==> | [[1,2,3],[4,5,6],[7,8,9]] |
==> +---------------------------+
==> 1 row

…and we want to return the array [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9].

Many programming languages have a ‘flatten’ function and although cypher doesn’t we can make our own by using the REDUCE function:

$ WITH  [[1,2,3], [4,5,6], [7,8,9]]

#AgileTrends! Vai aparecer?

Em 2013 não pude aparecer no Agile Trends porque tinha um outro evento no mesmo dia.

Em 2014 não é o caso! Neste dia 24 eu chego para uma intervenção depois do almoço! :-)

O nome da atividade? Construa um produto. Quando? Neste final de semana!

Coaching – helping people on your team effectively

Coaching is a tool which makes good teams great. It enables people to help others solve their problems in a respectful and effective way. And it is simpler than you think. Involves careful listening and pattern detection. Read on for details.

When I was a trainer in ThoughtWorks University I got very passionately interested in coaching. I was a coach to a number of people. I provided them with help and support to get the full benefits of the 5 weeks training programme. I learnt a lot, and I got inspired to invest more time to study and teach myself…

How to pass variable to partials in Rails

Define your partial

_next_prev_nav.erb

You can see here prev_url and next_url are variables that I want to pass values to when I call this partial.

Then call it like this:

           "http://foo.com", :next_url => "http://bar.com" %>

#TheBluesBrothers! Curiosidade :)

Descobri que no dia 22/abril/1978 foi o dia da primeira apresentação dos Blues Brothers. Valeu um post no Tresler, lembrando do filme, que é um dos meus clássicos.

When the Khaos is wrong

The subtitle is, "How to stop a bad proposal / project?" Working with a remote engineer that has local management support to investigate a new component that appears to fix every known problem in the system. When the senior staff reviews the work they find it lacking facts. It's more hand waving then data. To make it worst the local architect likes the proposal and with his past tried to ship the same thing at another company. And that's really just the tip of this iceberg. I need to collect my thoughts before posting more.
