Join the Eclipse Galileo Blogathon

· 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.

The Eclipse Foundation wants to hear what you think of the Eclipse projects that are being released as part of Galileo. We will give you a Friend of Eclipse membership or an Eclipse shirt for writing a review. One lucky winner will also win a pass to EclipseCon 2010 or Eclipse Summit Europe 2009!

To enter the blogathon, all you need to do is write a review about one or more of the projects that are a part of the Eclipse Galileo release. Publish the review on your blog, a newsgroup or portal and then send us a link to galileo-reviews@eclipse.org.

A review will be deemed worthy of a thank you gift, if the content conveys sufficient technical content. We aren't looking for long essays, so 3 to 5 points of what you like or don't like about one or more Galileo projects is sufficient. Eclipse is a global community, so feel free to write the review in your native language. You can also write multiple reviews, however we will only award one item per person. The top 3 reviews will also receive Eclipse jackets and the best review will receive a pass to the next EclipseCon 2010 or Eclipse Summit Europe 2009.

The top 3 and the best reviews will be selected by a panel of judges. All entries must be received by July 31, 2009. For full details, see the blogathon page.

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.
