Welcome back to another installment of This Week in Spring! There's so much good stuff to look at this week. Can you believe we're already staring down October?

It's time to think about who or what you are going to be for halloween!

With October comes SpringOne2GX, the premier event for Spring developers. Check out the final schedule of speakers and sessions for this year's event! SpringOne 2GX is your opportunity to learn from development leads and published authors on the Spring, Groovy/Grails, Tomcat and Cloud technologies.
