Wow! Guys, can you believe we are again staring down the end of the year? Time sure flies! In the US, this is the week of Thanksgiving, a holiday where we're supposed to take a moment and reflect upon the things for which we're grateful. I am (and I'm sure I speak for the team in saying that we are..) eternally grateful for you guys, the wonderful, vibrant and engaging community surrounding Spring, RabbitMQ and Cloud Foundry that makes putting together this roundup such a pleasure every week.
