This Week in Spring - March 24th, 2020

Engineering | Josh Long | March 24, 2020 | ...

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! It's a beautiful Tuesday for any number of reasons. I presented in the DevDotNext digital edition show just a few hours ago - that was a lot of fun and I highly recommend you consider attending the next editions (online or - assuming we get past this pandemic - online).

Today is also the 16th birthday of Spring Framework 1.0 - released this day in 2004! What a journey! And of course, the person who announced that that version, the amazing Thomas Risberg (@trisberg), is one of many people who were there then and are still here on the Spring team now. Spring's come a long way since then! Check out the blog itself. If you want to see the original blog in all of its early-2000s glory, it's here on the Internet Wayback machine.

I mentioned the birthday on Twitter and got some nice replies about people's use of the Framework in the replies. I love this sort of stuff. :-)

Anyway, let's get to this week's roundup. There is a ton of stuff to get to! I've been doing this roundup every week since January 2011, and there's always something interesting to review. As there had been for the six years before that since the 1.0 release. What a wonderful problem to have :)
