Record growth in microservices is disrupting the operational landscape. Read the Global Microservices Trends report to learn more.
DZone recently conducted a survey of our readers to find out why they use (or don't use) microservices. Over 87% of respondents say their company is either using microservices in their applications or is actively considering it, and 80% of those who use them say that microservices have made their jobs easier! In this light, we've put together a collection of tutorials and informational articles to help developers learn about what's important to them, based on what interests them about this architecture, and where they think the technology is going. Let's get started!
