So far, more than 12K software professionals from around the world have downloaded the publication, making it our most successful IoT Guide. We also released the following Refcardz (our technical cheat sheets) last month:
Thanks again to all of our publications authors. If you'd like to write for an upcoming Guide or Refcard, pitch us your idea at email@example.com.
We'd like to give a shoutout to the many awesome MVBs from the Lucidchart tech blog. You may remember Paul Draper's excellent "NULL is the Worst Mistake in Computer Science" post from last year. The team there is continuing to share excellent posts, especially Tyler Davis' recent article "Removing Roadblocks in the Move to Angular 4" and Stephen Rollins' "Cracking the Code Review" post series. Be on the lookout for more Lucidchart posts to arrive on DZone shortly!
Congratulations to Sisense MVB Shelby Blitz, our top new MVB for the month of May. Her most-read article, The Difference Between Business Intelligence and Business Analytics," received nearly 12K pageviews. We look forward to reading more of Shelby's great content in the future.
Yaron Haviv started contributing to DZone just this month, but he's already made an impression with our audience. His second article, Did Amazon Just Kill Open Source?," has almost 35K pvs and 100 likes. It's also inspired an intense conversation, with 53 comments in less than two weeks.
Every day, new contributors submit their first articles to DZone. Mahmoud Anouti's, however, was something special. His first-ever DZone post, What's New in Java 9? (Besides Modules)," earned an impressive 55K pageviews and received over sixty likes and a dozen comments.
