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.

The Eclipse Community Awards 2011 have opened for nominations. Help Eclipse honour the best individuals, projects and technologies from our community by telling us about your favourites.

There are 9 titles to be awarded this year:

  • Individual Awards - Top Committer, Top Contributor and Top Newcomer Evangelist
  • Project Awards - Most Innovative New Feature or Project and Most Open Project
  • Technology Awards - Best Application, Best Developer Tool, Best Mobile Product and Best Modeling Product

The Individual and Project Award winners will be determined by a vote of the community. The Technology Award winners will be determined by a panel of judges selected from Eclipse-oriented editors and Eclipse project leaders. All winners will be announced at EclipseCon 2011.

The deadline for nominations is January 28, 2011. You can check out the awards page for further details on the categories and the awards guidelines.
