Editors' Picks: Richard Startin and Shashank Rastogi
We'd like to give a huge shout-out to MVB Richard Startin for having some serious plagiarism spotting-skills. We'd published an article we believed to be an original, and Richard commented to let us know the content had been plagiarized. We'll be sending Richard some DZone swag as a thank-you.
Many thanks to Shashank Rastogi for writing a fantastic article series for the Microservices Zone. Shashank is a new contributor, but his content has already impressed our Editorial Team. We highly recommend checking out the first part of his series, "Microservices With OSS, Apache Kafka, and Docker: Install Apache Kafka in a Docker Container." We look forward to reading more of his posts!
See you next month for another DZone recap!
