<LI>The <EM>A thought with a cup of coffee!!!</EM> blog has an  introductory post  comparing   
	<a href="http://techythought.wordpress.com/2013/01/12/92/">Spring's <CODE>ApplicationContext</CODE>   to the  more general class, the  <CODE>BeanFactory</CODE></a>.

<LI> Last year in April, I spoke at the <EM>Great Indian Developer Summit</EM> in 
Bangalore, India. The show was amazing and - I've just been made aware - some of the videos 
are starting to trickle online.  One talk I gave was <a href ="http://cloud.dzone.com/articles/spring-and-cloud-foundry"><EM>Spring and Cloud Foundry: a Marriage Made in Heaven</em></a>, which you can watch online. Unfortunately, they don't seem to also have the slides! 
	 You can get the slides from my <a href="http://slideshare.net/joshlong">SlideShare.net profile page</a>. There are multiple permutations of this deck. Enjoy!

  • We released two new SpringOne2GX session replays, Automated Provisioning of Spring Apps to EC2 & VMware vCloud, and Addressing the Big Data Challenge with a Graph: Spring Data Neo4j.
  • Did you miss Jan Machacek's fantastic talk, Akka Eye for the Spring Guy or Gal, from SpringOne2GX 2012? This video is also available on InfoQ!

    use Spring's autowiring capability in conjunction with the @Qualifier annotation.

    </li>
