DZone 2012 Community Survey - Gift Cards up for Grabs!

· 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.

First off, I just want to say thanks to all of the community members on DZone who have helped us continue to be one of the best sources for developer content and links on the web!

Each year we like to pick your brain to help us make things even better at DZone, and in return we are offering up one $100 and two $50 Amazon gift cards to randomly selected DZone members who respond to our annual survey.

This year's survey is WAY SHORTER than in years past.  Only 14 questions, and you can complete it in 5-10 minutes without fail.  It also has mostly new and fun questions like:

  • What programming languages do you use for work and for fun?
  • Which technologies do you use for mobile development?
  • and Why do you use HTML5/CSS/JavaScript  (if at all)?

Take the Survey!
