Engineering | Josh Long | October 29, 2013 | ...

Welcome back to another installment of This Week in Spring!

If you're in the Bay Area, I hope you'll join me at 875 Howard St. in San Francisco at the Pivotal offices on the 5th floor at 5:30 both today and tomorrow. I'll be giving one talk each evening - one on building RESTful services with Spring, and the other a sort of abbreviated look at the latest and greatest in the Spring.IO platform. Also, the SpringOne2GX 2013 keynotes from day 1 and day 2 are now up for your enjoyment. Make sure to check out the Day 1 keynote around 1:13:40 to hear Pivotal Labs - hardcore Ruby developers, talk about their experience with Spring and Spring Boot.
