Yes, I looked at those but those did not help clarify it as well as looking at the code that creates the Graph of the Gods schema did. I think it will be very useful to add the code from the program that creates that database, and move that into the tutorial in Getting Started.  It could be in the Gremlin Query Language, or more appropriately the Schema and Data Modeling chapter.  My preference is that the Get Started mentions that the creation of the schema is covered there. That would really round it up. 

And what would help with the tutorial is if there was a cheat sheet that covered the difference say between what out does vs. outE for example.  A graphic representation of what these operators do or cover would be awesome. 

Maybe I am asking for a lot :-(. But that would have helped save a lot of time for me and had me productive a lot faster and less frustrated. Mind you, I am very familiar with this challenge. I am the CTO for Apache Trafodion / EsgynDB - the best HTAP SQL relational database for transactions through analytics on Hadoop (HBase, Hive, Apache ORC, Apache Avro, Parquet), and usability is always a challenge to address given all the other cool things we need to do that customers need.  I am trying to provide a integrated solution for our customers between our product and JanusGraph, to extended our capabilities to extensive graph traversal, blended with SQL access, using our powerful Table Mapping User Defined Functions interface.

The next chapter, Gremlin Query Language - - is probably what you are looking for.  Then there's the reference documentation for Gremlin at

Actually, after a bit more of searching, I was able to find the answer to my question.  Not in documentation form.  But will do.  It is the creation of the schema for the Graphs of the Gods example -- exactly what I was looking for, although not in Gremlin commands but Java.
