Mark and Wes will talk about Cypher optimization techniques based on real queries as well as the theoretical underlying processes. They'll start from the basics of "what not to do", and how to take advantage of indexes, and continue to the subtle ways of ordering MATCH/WHERE/WITH clauses for optimal performance as of the 2.0.0 release.
