This Week in Spring - February 25th, 2014

Engineering | Josh Long | February 25, 2014 | ...

Welcome back to another installment of This Week in Spring.

Yesterday I was in Atlanta, GA for the amazing DevNexus conference talking to developers about the latest and greatest in the wide world of Spring, and about REST API development with Spring. Today I am in Montreal, Canada, for the ConFoo conference. I'll speak to developers this week about Spring's rich NoSQL and big-data support and building REST APIs with Spring.
