Here in the Spring team, we are currently preparing for a busy next week: We have a three-day team meeting coming up from March 15th to 17th, immediately followed by the SpringSource S2G Forum Munich on Thursday, March 18th (overview, agenda, registration).
The S2G Forum series is a new conference concept that we are giving a try in Europe: One-day shows in specific regions, with international speakers, and also some regional-language talks thrown into the mix. Munich is the first of those shows this year; further ones are going to follow in Amsterdam on May 11th and in London on May 13th.
The conference is not only going to feature an “Essential Spring” track but also “Enterprise Productions Systems” and - for the first time at a European SpringSource event - a dedicated “Groovy and Grails” track. You’ll hear the project leads presenting in all of those tracks, so there is plenty of first-hand information waiting for you. And since we are coming straight from a team meeting, some new plans and insights might make their way into the public for the very first time at that show! :-)
At this point, there are still a few seats available. If Munich is within your reach, make sure to book your seat while you still can. See you around!
P.S.: Since the team meeting is held in Austria, we are able to provide a “sneak preview” at the eJUG in Linz… Dave and Mark will present an evening session on Spring Batch and Spring Integration on Tuesday, March 16th (eJUG Special).
