  • Enlightenmentware
    Streaming and transforming structured documents at scale used to require some awfully complex machinery such as Apache Camel, Kafka Connect, Flink, etc. I was so happy when I bumped into Benthos which can be used as a lightweight replacement in most cases. Bonus: It’s written in Golang, so I don’t have to bother with heavy dependencies and slow start times. - Source: Hacker News / about 2 months ago
  • Ask HN: Anyone looking for contributors for their open source projects
    If you're interested in Golang and data streaming, is a good project to contribute to. There are quite a few issues open on the GitHub project which anyone can pick up. Writing new connectors and adding tests / docs is always a good place to start. The maintainer is super-friendly and he's always active on the channels. I'm also there most of the time, since I've... - Source: Hacker News / 4 months ago
  • Seeking Insights on Stream Processing Frameworks: Experiences, Features, and Onboarding
    I have been working in the stream processing space since 2020 and I used Benthos. Since Benthos is a stateless stream processor, I have other components around it which deal with various types of application state, such as Kafka, NATS, Redis, various flavours of SQL databases, MongoDB etc. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Realistic Stack for One Person to implement/ maintain in an SMB?
    You might want to add Benthos to your stack. It’s Open Source and it works great for data streaming tasks. You could have your task orchestrator (Airflow, Flyte etc) run it on demand. I demoed it at KnativeCon last year. Source: over 1 year ago
  • What made you fall in love with Go?
    A few years ago, I found Benthos (the Open Source data streaming processor) and it was really easy to dive into it and add new features. Going through the various 3rd party libraries that it includes is usually straightforward and I'm comfortable enough with the language and various design patterns now to quickly get what's going on. That was rarely the case with C++. Source: over 1 year ago

  • Projects for landing a Golang job
    Nice job! A while back, I bumped into, which got integrated into for fake data generation. What were the design considerations when you started gofakeit? Does it have any niche features which faker doesn't provide or is there anything you'd like to see added to it? I'll give it a spin later to explore the API a bit. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Projects for landing a Golang job
    Contributing to somebody else’s Open Source project is usually a good way to show your skills and get a CV booster.

If Data Streaming is of any interest, is a great project to contribute to.... Source: over 1 year ago
  • Low Pressure/Work Life Balance Software Developer Job
    I think Optum / United Health Group might fit the bill. Depending on the team you'll find, you might not even need to do oncalls. They don't use the shiniest / newest tools out there and the quality of the internal software isn't usually stellar, but they have tons of internal products under active development and they tend to allocate very generous amounts of time for their development. I'm quite happy there,... Source: over 1 year ago

    You might want to have a look at It’s open source (MIT license). While it doesn’t have support for reading data from PDFs (yet), it can be quite useful if you’re happy to write some Go if you need to extend it. It allows users to inject any custom input/output/processor/etc and create their own binary. There’s also if you need a visual tool for your pipelines.... Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Help!
    Benthos could do this in a pretty straightforward way, but wouldn't use boto3. Also depending on very large, this could eat a lot of memory. Source: almost 2 years ago
