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. Please consider supporting my efforts, which I will be writing about as I go :)

Currently, most of my open source effort is being directed toward splitting sled into small subcomponents as part of the komora project as part of a radical redesign of the sled storage subsystem.

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.
