Hi Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week I’m in Minneapolis, Minnesota; Kansas City, Kansas; and Phoenix, Arizona talking to customers and Pivotal partners about all things Spring and Cloud Foundry. If you’re around don’t hesitate to say hi!
We’ve got a lot to cover this week, so let’s get started!
