This Week in Spring - September 8, 2015

Engineering | Josh Long | September 08, 2015 | ...

Welcome to another installation of This Week in Spring! This week I left Tokyo, Japan, and have been in Shanghai, China, speaking to a few large-scale startups - including, the largest food delivery service and application in a very crowded Chinese market with more than 2 million orders every day - about building cloud-native applications using Spring Boot, Spring Cloud and Cloud Foundry! Tomorrow, it's off to Oslo, Norway, for the amazing JavaZone conference. I love this conference and have, in the last two years, been unable to attend because it was concurrent with SpringOne2GX! Happily, this year it is not, and I'll be passing through on my way to Washington DC and SpringOne2GX 2015, this Monday!

The Spring team is hard at work this week preparing for SpringOne2GX 2015, starting next Monday, and so this week's seen a ton of exciting new releases! We're all excited for the next week and we hope to see you there!

Finally, it is my pleasure to share that my dear friend Kenny Bastani, who I asked to be the co-author of the upcoming book, O'Reilly's upcoming Cloud Native Java, joins my team this week as the first new Spring Developer Advocate. I hope you'll join me in welcoming him to the community and family!
