This Week in Spring - February 1st, 2022

Engineering | Josh Long | February 01, 2022 | ...

Hi, Spring fans! It's a new Lunar year, so that's exciting, and I just celebrated my birthday, and that of my late father, as well. That was exciting. But there was also some bittersweet news. Let's get that out of the way first...

My friend, my hero, Stéphane Maldini, former project lead of Project Reactor and cofounder of the Reactive Streams initiative, passed away two months ago. We in the Java community made him a Java Champion posthumously. We miss him dearly. I think of him when I write reactive code.

Mon ami, mon héros, Stéphane Maldini, ancien lead de l'equipe Reactor et cofondateur des Reactive Streams, est mort il y a deux mois. La commaunité Java l'a nommé un Java Champion. Il nous manque beaucoup. Je pense a lui lorsque j'ecris du code reactive.

Java Champions on Twitter.

RIP, Stéphane.

Sigh.

It's been two months and it still sucks so much that he's gone. Thanks for indulging this lament, and now, on to this week's roundup.
