This Week in Spring - October 22nd, 2019

Engineering | Josh Long | October 22, 2019 | ...

Hi, Spring fans! What a week! I've just returned from Prague, the Czech Republic, where I was for the epic Geecon Prague 2019 event. (Thanks for voting my talk on Reactive Spring the #1 talk, Prague!). Now I'm in Nantes, France, the DevFest Nantes show. I'd never been to Prague and I've never been to Nantes. So how's that for cool first-time appearances in one week? I'll be speaking about testing here. Tonight I fly to Paris, Fr, for customer meetings. Then I fly on Thursday to St. Petersburg, Russia, for the Joker conference, where I'll be presenting on testing and I'll be co-presenting with Spring co-founder, my friend, and hero, the one, the only, the amazing and inimitable, a veritable font of kindness and wisdom, Juergen Hoeller! Then, on the 27th, I fly to Chicago. It's shaping up to be quite the week!

I've really enjoyed my time in Prague and now Nantes. Yesterday, I recorded 3 podcasts with folks from Microsoft and Pivotal, among others, so look forward to them in my podcast, A Bootiful Podcast. I also got to tour Nantes a little bit with my friend and Reactor / Spring teammate Simon Baslé. Merci, Simon!

I thought I was going to wake up and get this week's This Week in Spring roundup done and dusted before breakfast but it has turned out to be a whopper of a roundup! I hope you made a pot of coffee, this one's going to be a doozie!
