This Week in Spring - November 22nd, 2022 - Spring Boot 3 and Thanksgiving edition!

Engineering | Josh Long | November 22, 2022 | ...

Hi, Spring fans! It's Tuesday, the 22nd of November, 2022, as I write this, which means we're two days away from Spring Boot 3 and Thanksgiving. Spring Boot 3, I've written about in abundance so I won't rehash that. If you want to learn more about some of the amazing new features in Spring Framework 6 and Spring Boot 3, perhaps check out my Spring Tips installment introducing them in this episode:

And, of course, a major new feature in Spring Boot 3 is the new ahead-of-time (AOT) engine, about which I speak at great length in tomorrow's new installment of Spring Tips:

This video is done so that you can watch the first part as an application developer and get a lot out of it. Folks who want to take the concepts further - as a library, or framework, or developer, can carry on 'till the end of the video. Either way, I hope you learn something interesting in your journey to production with Spring Boot 3, due - again - in less than 48 hours' time!

I mentioned Thanksgiving. The US isn't the only country to have such a holiday, so I'm perhaps telling some folks things they already know, for which I'm sorry, but: Thanksgiving is a (self-explanatory) holiday in which people are encouraged to be thankful. To take stock in our lives and find reasons for gratitude. My friends, I am grateful for you. I'm sure I speak for the entire Spring team (celebrating Thanksgiving or not!) when I say that we are all thankful for you. Happy Thanksgiving, my friends.

Without further ado, let's dive right into this week's epic roundup.
