Rust for Java developers
I’m a software engineer working for Red Hat, with an interest in open source and integrating systems. Over the years I’ve been involved in various open source communities tackling problems like:
- Enterprise messaging and integration (Apache ActiveMQ)
- IoT platforms (Drogue IoT / Eclipse IoT / Eclipse Hono)
- Edge computing (Kubernetes IoT Edge working group)
The Java ecosystem is huge, allowing developers to build all kinds of applications. But the ever-evolving nature of computing makes Java not an ideal choice for some new applications. Rust promises to better fit some of those domains, so let’s take a look at how Java developers can dive into it.
