Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week I'm in Munich and Wolfsburg, Germany, visiting with customers, then it's off to Seoul, South Korea, for customers and some user group talks.
This week we've got a lot of exciting Spring Cloud Data Flow news, coincident with the new Spring Cloud Data Flow RC1
- The good Dr. Pollack, co-lead of the Spring Cloud Data Flow project, just announced Spring Cloud Data Flow RC1 which has updated deployers supporting deployments locally and to Apache YARN, Kubernetes, Mesos, and of course Cloud Foundry, an incredible integration of Spring Cloud Flo (a visualization for Spring Cloud Data Flow streams) into the Spring Cloud Data Flow Dashboard, improved OAuth support and so much more!
- I really enjoyed Mark Paluch's excellent blog pulling back the veil of obscurity around the security secrets sensation sweeping the nation, Hashicorp Vault, and how Spring Cloud Vault works.
- I loved this discussion between our very own Phil Webb, Spring Boot co-founder, and Andrew Clay Shafer, one of our cloud luminaries!
- Have you seen our new Spring Cloud Task Starters? From the page: "the Spring Cloud Task Application Starters are standalone executable applications that can be used for on-demand use-cases such as database migration, machine learning, and scheduled operations. These applications can run independently on variety of runtime platforms including: Cloud Foundry, Apache Yarn, Apache Mesos, Kubernetes, Docker, or even on your laptop."
- our friends at JDriven put together a nice post on creating fully executable
.jars with the Spring Boot Maven plugin
- Jakub Narloch put together a great post on a custom auto-configuration to run work on various RxJava schedulers with his custom component model based on Spring Boot
- Stormpath's own Micah Silverman put together a great post on connecting a Spring Boot application with Stormpath Authentication in 15 minutes
- Trevor Page put together a fun piece on how the Spring team seem hell-bent on making our lives as Java programmers easier and easier." I get the feeling we're making fans.. :-)
- I haven't read this yet, but this book on Spring Cloud Data Flow looks interesting!
- In New York City? Check out this meetup on Spring Cloud Data Flow with Spring Cloud Data Flow lead Mark Pollack himself!
- our very own Michael Coté put together a nice post, "Multi-Cloud is a Safety Belt for the Speed-Freaks" for InfoQ. His posts (and his talks and podcasts!) are insightful and often hilarious.
I am really looking forward to this year's SpringOne Platform show, coming in early August. It's an amazing time to build applications, and SpringOne Platform is in a unique position to capture the larger discussion: why do we #devops, #cloud, #agile, or #microservice? Join the discussion August 1-4, 2016 in beautiful Las Vegas and let's find out!
