  • There are no clear trending projects in the Java category in December 2022.
  • Nowadays many organizations have Kafka in their technology stack. The “UI for Apache Kafka” project interesting and promising project to include in your toolset. As it is claimed on the project page – built by developers, for developers.
  • The project growth trends in the Rust category are incredible. It is clearly visible that Rust is a “hot” topic in the development community.
  • The “burn” project from the Rust category seems something really needed. A deep learning framework with a focus on researchers and practitioners. I would like to see more AI/ML-oriented projects coming in this category.
