This Week in Spring - December 22nd, 2020

Engineering | Josh Long | December 22, 2020 | ...

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring!

It's December 22nd, 2020, as I write this and I can not believe we're smack dab in the middle of the week and only have two shopping days until Christmas! I don't know if it's just that time of year and I'm flush with the normal amount of warm-n-fuzzies or if it's just that, after a year like 2020, I'm very keen on savoring this precious reprieve. Either way, couldn't be happier. I've got a cold! I'm sick and sneezing and my nose is running, but at least it's not COVID-19, and at least I've got my family and my job, and - all things considered - I feel very, very, veery fortunate.

And yes, that's right, I enumerated my health, my family, and my job because - after ten wonderful years (and counting) - I feel like the Spring team are family and I feel like working with you, dear community, is a true and exceptional privilege. I get so many wonderful messages from folks whenever I publish this weekly roundup or a blog or a video, and I appreciate that folks. I have always appreciated it, but especially this year when I, like so many in the world, am otherwise completely isolated from people. Thank you, and please let me wish you the warmest of greetings (if you don't celebrate Christmas) and the happiest of holidays (if you do celebrate Christmas).

In that spirit, I was so happy when I assembled this week's roundup and realized there's a ton of great stuff for us to dive into, so with that, let's get to it!
