These slides introduce you to a sample application that combines multiple microservices with a graph processing platform to rank communities of users on Twitter. The problem we’re going to solve is how to discover communities of influencers on Twitter using a set of seed profiles as inputs. To solve this problem without a background in machine learning or social network analytics might be a bit of a stretch, but we’re going to take a stab at it using a little bit of computer science history. We’re going to use a collection of popular tools as a part of this article’s sample application. The tools we’ll use, in the order of importance, will be: Spring Boot, Neo4j, Apache Spark, Docker, RabbitMQ.
