Hi Spring fans! How’s things? I’m in Taipei, Taiwan, where I’ve presented at the local JUG and at the Cloud Native Forum. It’s been a crazy good time on the ground eating delicious “stinky tofu” (that’s its name!), trying to figure out the difference between traditional Chinese characters and so-called simplified Chinese characters used in China, and of course making tons of new friends.
In less than 24h I’ll be on a plane winging my way back west where I’ll join my family, and our newest addition, and our friends, and we’ll celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday together. It’s this time of year when I try to take stock of all the things for which I’m grateful and you know what, dear reader? Time and time again, I think of you, the community that makes Spring the best place to integrate and innovate. I am thankful for you. I’m sure I speak for the Spring team and Pivotal at large when I say, we are thankful for you.
From all of us to all of you: Happy Thanksgiving!
