    Project mention: What even is a JSON number? | | 2024-04-01

    Oh wow. So serde_json doesn't roundtrip floats by default, it uses some imprecise faster algorithm

    Good thing there's msgpack I guess.

    Project mention: Show HN: Skytable's new NoSQL engine BlueQL with injection safety, improved perf | | 2023-12-10

    Hey HN!

    I've been working on Skytable since 2020 and after several iterations from a simple K/V store, we've walked the path to this release. The goal of Skytable is to deliver a solid foundation for building data intensive applications.

    Skytable's primary goal is performance and scale. Even with a query language it can outperform K/V stores which use simple commands (benchmarks will be shared in another post).

    Several implementations in Skytable (especially around query evaluation and execution) are fundamentally different from SQL and even NoSQL counterparts and there are some entirely new concepts which might make it a little hard to grasp.

    BlueQL is a very important part of Skytable and it employs some interesting concepts to try and reduce the surface for injection attacks and tries to be a modern and secure alternative to SQL.
