NEW Refcardz Topics (Round 2): Awesome or Lame?

  • submit to reddit
Thanks to everyone who participated in our last Refcardz poll!  Here were some of the results:

This data has been quite helpful in making decisions about the refcardz that we decide to produce for you, so you will see the benefits of doing these surveys in the coming months.

Now, it's time to do it again!  Here is another list below of just 10 refcard ideas for your evaluation.

Here's how it works:  This little poll lists just a handful of potential refcard topics and descriptions, and all you have to do is vote on whether you think they'll be AWESOME or LAME.  If you don't think you know what topics are good for a particular topic field (for example, a Java dev may not know what topics are good in the .NET world) you can just skip the question!  Easy right?

The third answer option allows you to suggest how it could be improved (you could suggest a narrower aspect or a different angle to focus on).  Many times our topic ideas can start out too broad.  Major topics probably often deserve several cards, making each card more practical than one overarching card.

Also, if you do want to specifically suggest a card, do that in the comments of this article.  Now, on to the poll!

Thanks!  You won't regret it!

More refcards about OSGi because it is very important to build complex applications such as IDEs, application servers, application frameworks, industrial automation and more.
