At Dozer, we have adopted Rust as our main programming language, despite many of our team members having a strong background in C++. This is because Rust offers a combination of expressiveness, safety and ergonomics through its language constructs, which we find appealing.
In this post, we will discuss two language features that we believe Rust handles better than C++, namely its ownership model and trait object system. These compare favorably to C++'s move semantics and virtual functions, respectively, and provide insights into why Rust has gained popularity among many developers.
Have you ever found yourself re-inventing the wheel as a data engineer to ultimately build some APIs? In this article, I want to go through the motivations that led us to build something like Dozer.
What are the challenges of implementing efficient and scalable data APIs?
Ever come across occasions when you run into query performance issues for important queries that run on your database? This is when most companies will look to introducing a caching layer to improve the speed of queries.
Traditional tools for data engineering are suffering in performance and scalability. JVM-based tools are becoming outdated, while new languages are becoming increasingly popular. Will Rust and WASM replace the current data engineering JVM-based stack ?
