Hi Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! I hope you had a wonderful, safe and fruitful new year celebration.
This is the first roundup of the new year and so it is also the 7th year anniversary of my starting this column. Every Tuesday, without fail (come holiday, sick-day, flights or frights!), since the first week of January 2011, I’ve put together this roundup and it has been, and continues to be, an honor. As usual, I’m always happy to have feedback and suggestions from you, the most amazing community ever! Don’t hesitate to reach me on Twitter (@starbuxman) or by email.
Over time, the content covered in this blog has changed. I include things that the Spring ecosystem encompasses like NoSQL/big-data, cloud computing, web application discussions, Java in general, testing, and even some discussions of agile and culture. It’s a growing, living thing because Spring is itself an dynamic and organic project. I’ve started doing screencasts - eleven videos at a time for a “season” - called Spring Tips for a couple of years now, too. These join my books, training videos, talks, blogs, podcasts, and social media as avenues by which I try to bring Spring to an ever growing, inquiring and inspiring community. It’s such a privilege to work on something that I love and share that passion with others who also love it. Thank YOU.
Now, as usual, we’ve got a lot to cover, so let’s get to it.
