With the advent of feature based teams, software architecture styles like Microservices and deployment patterns like Devops are taking over. Each team takes autonomous decisions on technologies used, but there is always a need to define a common language for the services to communicate with each other. This way there will be a common wire format and avoid lot of mappers across the application. The other common scenario is in big data projects where the cluster of nodes need to communicate efficiently and effectively, with ease of API.
This talk highlights on Apache Avro and Apache Thrift which are used in Big data solutions -- which act as common language across different services/nodes in big data applications. These technologies act as language and platform neutral way of serializing structured data. This talk also shows examples and demos -- highlighting the pain points they solve.
