On May 14th, we released the first-ever DZone Guide to Open Source and were glad to see our audience's high degree of interest in this topic. Thus far, the Guide has been downloaded over 8,500 times. We also published the brand-new Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) for Documents Refcard last month.
The Open-Source Showdown Contest
On May 22nd, we let our contributor community know we were accepting submissions for the upcoming Open-Source Showdown Contest. We launched this contest in anticipation of the launch of the Open Source Zone on June 18th. While the actual, March Madness-style Showdown will begin on June 18th, we'll be accepting articles on open-source articles through June 12th. Our favorite OSS articles will be entered into the Showdown for a chance at some great prizes, including GitHub, Spotify, and Audible memberships.

Introducing Cynthia Rich
We're very pleased to welcome Cynthia Rich to the Zone Leader community. Cynthia will be focused on curating, promoting, and writing for the soon-to-be-launched Open Source Zone. With her many years of experience related to OSS, she'll be able to guide our editorial direction and offer suggestions for growing this new Zone.
Cynthia is a Technical Training Manager and GitHub, where she's responsible for a team of talented trainers who travel the globe teaching developers. She's also the Product Manager for GitHub Learning Lab. Later this month, Cynthia will be visiting the DZone offices to give us a GitHub tutorial - we can't wait!
Editors' Picks: Gowtham Girithar, Satyaprakash Samantaray, and Ken Fogel
Lately, we've been signing on a ton of fantastic MVBs who intend to use DZone as their personal blogging platform. One of them is Gowtham Girithar, a DZone contributor since June of 2017 who just recently joined the MVB program. So far, he's written some excellent DZone-exclusive posts. His "Features in Java 10" article raked in over 24,000 views, and he's been super attentive to the comments.
Another contributor who's been using DZone as his personal blog and doing a great job of it is Satyaprakash Samantaray. Satyaprakash is new to DZone, but his first article, "Filter Records Using jQuery Without Post Page," made quite a splash in the Database Zone, earning nearly 11,000 pageviews.
Are you Java dev looking for a fun weekend project involving your Raspberry Pi? If so, check out MVB Ken Fogel's two-part series, "Raspberry Pi, Java, and the GoPiGo3." Part 1 takes you through the various setup configurations of a GoPiGo3 robotic car. Part 2 teaches you how to create a JSF app to control your car via web browser. Enjoy!
