Welcome to another installation of This Week in Spring! This week I’m mostly in San Francisco and Saint Louis, busily preparing for the big event next week!
This is my favorite time of year! As we lead to SpringOne Platform, there’s so much good stuff being released that one can hardly keep up! 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!
We’ve got a lot to cover and very little time in which to do it so let’s get to it!
