Hi Spring fans and welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week I’m in New York City for the Kafka Summit where I’ll be joining the excellent Tim Berglund, head of developer experience at Confluent, and James Watters, SVP at Pivotal, to talk about why Pivotal and Confluent are better together. Join us! Then, next week it’s off to South Africa (for the SpringOne Tour shows in Capetown and Johannesburg and then it’s off to to Mauritius for the DevConf. If you’re in any of those places, don’t hesitate to say hi!.
