  • Google Cloud is hiring to build an official Rust SDK
    1 project | | 13 Jan 2022
    Absolutely love to see this. There's already an AWS SDK in Rust, and we're now getting a GCP SDK as well. These tools are critical for Rust adoption in the cloud/microservice space.
  • Why Architecture Oriented Programming Matters (2019)
    1 project | | 20 Dec 2021
    I've said a few times that modern microservice architectures feel a lot like what traditional object-oriented programming was about, and I think this is another confirmation of that. I think that these days the connectors are JSON over HTTP, RPC and things like that. When a service exposes a JSON over HTTP API, I can use it from any programming language, from any program.

    So "first class connectors", to me, would be something like a language describing how to interact with a service, and a code generator that takes that language and transform it into code in your language. For example, the aws-sdk-rust [1] says:

    > The SDK is code generated from Smithy models that represent each AWS service. The code used to generate the SDK can be found in smithy-rs.

    Here's a link to Smithy's homepage:

    To me, Smithy with a code generator looks like a connector that would increase your productivity. But I'm not sure if we can call something that relies on code generation "first class". I'm not sure what "first class connectors" would look like either.

  • Writing a Lambda in Rust using aws-lambda-rust-runtime and aws-sdk-rust

    aws-sdk-rust is a new AWS SDK for Rust that is under development and only "alpha" released. I've used just the s3 client from it, so all I have to add is:
