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.
