Q2 2021


With a mainstream shift toward cloud-native development, more organizations than ever are realizing real benefits as they modernize their architectures with containerized environments. While this move promises to accelerate application development, it also introduces a new set of challenges that occur with a fundamentally altered software delivery pipeline, ranging from security to complexity and scaling.

In DZone's 2021 Containers Trend Report, we explore the current state of container adoption, uncover common pain points of adopting containers in a legacy environment, and explore modern solutions for building scalable, secure, stable, and performant containerized applications.

Q2 2021

Modern Web Development

The web is evolving fast, and developers are quick to adopt new tools and technologies. DZone’s recent 2021 Modern Web Development survey served to help better understand how developers build successful web applications, with a focus on how decisions are made about where computation and storage should occur.

This Trend Report will help readers examine the pros and cons of critical web development design choices, explore the latest development tools and technologies, and learn what it takes to build a modern, performant, and scalable web application. Readers will also find contributor insights written by DZone community members, who cover topics ranging from web performance optimization and testing to a comparison of JavaScript frameworks.
