DURATION40 min

The future of data engineering is looking increasingly Rusty. By adopting the foundational crates of Delta Lake, data fusion, and arrow, developers can write high-performance and low-cost ingestion pipelines, transformation jobs, and data query applications. Attendees don't need to know Rust ahead of time; we will review some fundamental concepts of the language as they pertain to the data engineering domain. The main goal of this session is to provide attendees with a starting point to learn Rust by applying it to the real-world data problems they're already familiar with:

 

  • Ingesting semi-structured data into Delta tables (e.g. CSV, JSON, etc.)
  • Enriching data from multiple tables to create new silver/gold tables
  • Performing table management (e.g. OPTIMIZE, VACUUM)
  • Exporting data from Delta tables to external systems (e.g. Elastic/OpenSearch)
