Things are starting to get interesting now. We’ve been over a bit of history, and then got to know Neo4j a little better as well, now it’s time to get started. To start taking advantage of the awesome things Neo4j has to offer, we need to install it first. Whether you use Windows, Mac, or Linux, getting started with Neo4j is really easy. On any of these systems, it’s possible to install Neo4j directly, or potentially by using Vagrant, which is a tool used to create development environments. If you’re unfamiliar with Vagrant, don’t worry, everything will be explained soon enough.
