Weekly Poll: Open Source in 2012

Take 60 minutes to understand the Power of the Actor Model with "Designing Reactive Systems: The Role Of Actors In Distributed Architecture". Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

As we head toward the end of the year, we began wondering what the most significant achievements and trends in the tech industry have been during 2012. The next few weeks, our weekly polls will be focused on an end-of-year wrap up, which, in addition to seeing the results instantly after responding, will be viewable in a "Best of 2012" post shortly into the new year.

Continuing this chain, this week's poll is focused on the DZone audience's contributions to open-source this year. Some of the questions in this week's poll will not have instant results, but will be viewable in the follow-up after the year change.

Learn how the Actor model provides a simple but powerful way to design and implement reactive applications that can distribute work across clusters of cores and servers. Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.
