I’ve been reading a lot about ZIO lately, even to the point of writing a few simple thinks with the help of a more advanced Scala friend. As I’ve mentioned before, it looks solid
No plans on smelting anything soon, but this was interesting.
The proposed approaches for async-await in Rust are shaping up.
It should surprise no-one, except maybe hardcore rubyists that moving from Ruby to Rust yielded terrific speed-ups. Something similar should happen in Python, though.
One of the core tenets of Rust is having zero-cost abstractions (as in, being as close to manually written). Here you can read how futures fit that goal.
Traits will be familiar to Scala or even Go or Java developers, but there are a few gotchas/differences you need to be aware.
A friend of mine has used Apache Druid before, and has been really happy with its performance, so I’ve been looking into possible use cases to road-test it.
I’ve linked before to GeoIP approaches, this one is interesting as long as you only want country-level resolution, I usually need city or better.
Similarly to Druid, I’ve been checking several things to speed up some areas. Apache HBase might be one of them, and I wanted to see how it works under the hood, I love these details
As mentioned above, ZIO is shaping up nicely, and the scheduling helpers presented here are one of the selling points, depending on what you do.
Duh… but… to be fair… there is a point in here.
Incremental approach suggestions for typing in Python, at Facebook (Instagram to be precise)
Everything here should sound familiar if you are anything into functional programming
