DZone released 14 Guides in 2017 - the most we have ever released in a single year. Planning for each Guide begins as much as a year prior to its planned release and often runs right up to the Friday evening prior to its Monday launch. Each Guide requires a full team effort at DZone, and we also rely on the excellent DZone contributor community to provide us with the articles that you read.
On this 4th Day of the 12 Days of Content, we'd like to provide you with
4 calling birds
a complete list of the 2017 Guides, and highlight the four first-time Guides for you to peruse.
The Four First-Time Guides of 2017

The DZone Guide to Microservices: Breaking Down the Monolith, released in December
Description: Microservices haven’t yet hit their 10th birthday, and already, they have dramatically improved developers’ ability to easily change, replace, and scale applications. The increased popularity of Microservices has even led to the development of technologies that coordinate well with the architectural pattern.
