Weekly Poll: Preferred Professional Contact Method

What every Java engineer should know about microservices: Reactive Microservices Architecture.  Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

After reading Jurgen Appelo's reflections on not answering the phone, we began to wonder what method DZone's audience prefers to be contacted through, when it comes to work. Do you also prefer not to deal with phone calls during work? Or do you relish the long-distance conversation to break the monotony of long hours of coding?

Let us know in this week's poll about preferred professional contact. You'll get to see the responses so far instantly. And, even better, responding just might lead to better communication in the future.

Microservices for Java, explained. Revitalize your legacy systems (and your career) with Reactive Microservices Architecture, a free O'Reilly book. Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.
