Weekly Poll: Kirk vs. Picard; Refcardz!

· Java Zone

Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

This week, you get not one, but TWO weekly polls. One is displayed as usual, and will give instant results, like normal. It's at the bottom of this page and is, as you will quickly tell, not particularly development related.

The second is considerably longer than our average poll, is focused on which Refcardz topics you'd like to see in the near future, and is available by clicking either this link, or the button below. Enjoy!
