We initially announced Transit on this blog back on July 22nd. Today we are pleased to announce a live webinar on September 12, in which our very own Russ Olsen will walk you through some example use cases of Transit. Register at go.cognitect.com/transit_webinar
If you need to move data between applications, JSON is your friend.
No matter where your program is running, no matter which programming language you are using, chances are there is a high quality — and high performance — JSON implementation available. But JSON has some shortcomings: It only supports a very limited set of types. It’s not extensible. And it is verbose.
In this webinar, Russ Olsen will take you through examples of Transit, a format that is built atop JSON, and the closely related MessagePack. Transit takes up where JSON leaves off:
- Transit comes with a much richer set of types including full 64 bit integers, UUIDs, and timestamps.
- Transit also includes a straight forward mechanism for defining new types as well as a simple but effective caching mechanism.
