Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone! This week I’m in Melbourne, Australia for the YOW! conference and then week it’s off to Brisbane and then Sydney for the next editions of the same show. Australia is the furthest I’ve ever been from my ‘native’ timezone - so even though I always post This Week in Spring every Tuesday, I appreciate that it’s still Monday for anybody west of Europe right now! Tonight, I’ll join my pal, Intellij’s Trisha Gee, and we’ll be speaking at the Melbourne JVM User Group. I’m super excited to be here, for my first time, helping bring the Spring down under. If you’re around then say hi (@starbuxman)!
