Having programmed in Scala(Use it along with the SMACK Stack) for almost a year, I have assisted a great number of teams in building Big Data Analytics platforms & solutions.
Being attracted to Rust’s similarity with Scala(Closures to Iterators to much more “first-class” constructs!; OOPS kept aside ), I am wondering if Apache Spark-like big data processing systems can be implemented in Rust? If certain, what PROs and CONs can we expect?
JVM is resource bloated and bit boring(at least after 6 yrs).
I believe Rust 1.17 is stable enough(Successful 1Million thread benchmark & all) to be considered as an alternative now.
Keen on hearing. Thanks in advance
