I productionize cutting-edge database research with implementations in the Rust programming language. If you've ever used sled, rocksdb from Rust, kubernetes, etcd, mesos, or most of the newsql systems, my work has reached your systems in some way. I'm currently taking a break from full-time employment to focus on open-source. Please consider supporting my efforts, which I will be writing about as I go :)

Check out this video from FOSDEM 20 for an overview of some of the projects I've been able to build with the help of sponsors over the past few years.

53 sponsors are funding spacejam’s work.
