This Week in Spring - May 22nd, 2018

Engineering | Josh Long | May 22, 2018 | ...

Hi Spring fans! Whew! What a wild week it's been! I landed in Kiev, Ukraine, last Thursday to present at the epic JEEConf in beautiful Kiev. Then, this weekend it was off to Dublin, Ireland and Belfast, North Ireland, where I had the privilege of speaking to some of the amazing Pivotal customers (like Liberty). I concluded today here in Belfast and tomorrow it's off to bella Barcelona, Spain for the Spring I/O conference.
