Survey on “Microservices: Hype and Reality”

Software Architectures revolving around services have seen a renaissance with the hype of microservices being the hot topic of many developer conferences and online discourse alike.

We invite you to participate in our survey about your experience with service architectures. Your answers will help us shed a light on how service architectures are implemented in industrial practice and provide future directions for research through the challenges we observe.

The following survey should take  7-8 minutes of your time.

We will keep your survey responses anonymous. We will NOT attribute answers to any particular participant.

We would greatly appreciate your participation! Thank you!

Please feel free to contact Jürgen Cito or Gerald Schermann at {cito, schermann} if you have any further questions.
