Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

Roman Nurik posted a great update to the Android Asset Studio. You can use the Android Asset Studio to generate launcher icons, action bar and tab icons, notification icon. You can also add device frames to your screenshots and create simple nine-patch assets.



See the added features from Roman's G+ post:
• Added device frames for the  Nexus 7  and Samsung's  Galaxy S III Galaxy Note , and  Galaxy Tab 2 7-inch  devices. Many thanks to Samsung for contributing device photos
• Shadow and screen glare in the device frame generator are now optional, and rotation is available as well
• New Holo-inspired styling and a generally simplified UI
• Updated clipart based on the action bar icon pack from Android Design
• Minor updates to the simple nine-patch generator (and it's now linked to from the index page)
• Linked to  +Jeff Gilfelt 's action bar style generator from the index page
• More bleeding-edge HTML5 features are now used instead of third-party library dependencies, so you  really  want to use Chrome with the Asset Studio

Discover how the Watson team is further developing SDKs in Java, Node.js, Python, iOS, and Android to access these services and make programming easy. Brought to you in partnership with IBM.
