CBOR - The better JSON

Wednesday from 9:00 PM til 10:00 PM

CBOR, the Concise Binary Object Representation, is a schema-less but type-safe data format, optimized for efficient serialization, streaming, compact data representation and easily parseable.

Using borabora, a fast and lazy evaluating CBOR parser, it is easy to query specific data or objects from a CBOR data stream.

This talk presents the basics about CBOR, a short comparison to JSON, BSON and other similar data formats. It also presents the current state of the parser and possible alternative implementations like Jackson. Furthermore it introduces the audience to parser features like queries and the showcase Hazelcast integration. The latter shows how easy and practical the CBOR data format is for clusters or micro services and how to build systems for 24/7 operational time using CBOR.
