As a companion to the announcement of our new Microservices Zone, we launched the "At Your (Micro) Service" contest on February 1st. The contest ran until February 28th and focused on original content related to microservices. The more Microservices Zone posts you had published, the greater your chances of winning. 

There were five ways to win:

  1. Receive the most cumulative pageviews on your DZone originals, with posts to the Microservices Zone counting for 3X the pageviews. 

  2. Receive the most cumulative pageviews on your Microservices Zone originals.

  3. Have the most original posts published to the Microservices Zone.

  4. Be our randomly selected Microservices author. 

  5. Receive the most cumulative Likes on your original content.

And the lucky (and talented) winners are...

Most Cumulative DZone Pageviews: Justin Albano

MVB Justin Albano consistently appears atop our monthly contributor rankings, and the month of February was no different. Justin posted ten original articles to DZone this month, one of them in the Microservices Zone. His nine Java posts received huge pageview counts. His article, "3 Things Every Developer Should Stop Doing," earned over 40,000 pageviews alone. Justin will be receiving an Apple iPad mini as his prize - congrats! 

Most Cumulative Microservices Zone Pageviews: John Vester

Zone Leader John Vester posted one article to the Microservices Zone, and it was so awesome it earned more Microservices pageviews than any other authors' posts. His post, "A RESTful Interface With a Wide-Open Contract," received nearly 11,000 pageviews. Plus, it included a Seinfeld reference, which we always enjoy. We'll be sending John a NEST as his reward. Well done, John! 

Most Microservices Zone Posts: Thomas Jardinet and Akash Bhingole

We have a tie! Both Thomas Jardinet (our intrepid Microservices Zone Leader) and Akash Bhingole posted two original articles to the Microservices Zone. We'll be awarding each of them with an Amazon Echo Show. Nice job, Thomas and Akash! 

Our Randomly-Selected Microservices Author: Bruce Beibei Li 

Congrats to Bruce Beibei Li for being our randomly selected Microservices author. He was selected from a pool of 15 writers who contributed an original Microservices post during the contest time frame. Check out the great post that gave him the lucky win, "Questions to Ask Before Choosing Microservices." As his prize, Bruce has earned an ASUS Chromebook. Awesome work, Bruce! 

Most Cumulative Likes: Justin Albano 

Justin Albano takes home his second prize of this contest for earning the most Likes on his DZone original content. His ten posts received 856 Likes in total! His most-Liked post was also his most-read post: "3 Things Every Developer Should Stop Doing." Justin will receive an LCD projector as his reward. Congrats again, Justin!
