Don’t Get Lost in Translation: Strategies for Serializing Data Structures

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The current solutions for mapping data to java objects come in many shapes and sizes, with JSON leading as the most familiar and “coolest” solution. Yes, JSON is very readable, convenient, and offers great support libraries like GSON and Jackson, but these options don’t always get the job done. Accessing and parsing serialized data is a common source of runtime inefficiency within applications, and this delay can crush your app’s overall user experience. How can you bypass this inefficiency? Google’s FlatBuffer library is the answer. FlatBuffers are similar to Google’s Protocol Buffers, but with one key differentiator: the ability to access serialized data without parsing or unpacking it first. Imagine a serialization process with no temporary objects, no additional allocation, and no copying. Join us for a deep dive into Google’s FlatBuffers library to learn more about the advantages of using FlatBuffers and what makes it different from other commonly used libraries.
