C++ developer & your heart beats for performance and efficiency? 

ObjectBox helps app developers develop faster apps faster by ensuring data is where it is needed when it is needed. The core is our high-performance, lightweight, embedded database written in C / C++ with easy native-language APIs for Java, Kotlin, Swift, Dart (Flutter), Go, and C / C++. On top of the database, we’re building an out-of-the-box Data Sync (think of it as a git for data; currently in Early Access; so far demonstrating great efficiency).
