Calling All Graphic Artists

· Java Zone

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.

I am working on three projects that could use the assistance of a graphic artist or at least someone with Photoshop skills. If you are so inclined, all contributions are appreciated.

1. We need a graphic for the upcoming Galileo release. You can see what was done in previous years for Europa and Ganymede. I have opened a bug to collect contributions for this year.

2. The Pulsar Working Group needs a graphic and logo. Pulsar is the new working group that is defining a mobile tools platform. Contributions can go here.

3. We want to create a new brand identity for Eclipse runtime technology. Many people think of Eclipse as being tools but Eclipse has a growing base of technology that is used by applications at runtime. The Eclipse Runtime PMC is the home to a lot of this technology, but components of BIRT, Modeling and others also have runtime components. More details about the branding of EclipseRT have been posted on the RT Wiki. Suggestions can be submitted here.

Get the creative juices going and start design those graphics. :-)
