This Week in Spring - February 9th, 2016
Welcome to another installation of This Week in Spring! This week I'm in beautiful Stockholm, Sweden at the amazing JFokus conference. It's also Shrove Tuesday here in Sweden and the custom is to over-indulge, so as I type this I am eating a Semla. I hope you too enjoy over-indulging on this week's epic roundup!
