This Week in Spring - July 24th, 2018

Hi Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week I’m in San Francisco in studio with Spring Security lead Rob Winch filming our new Spring Security Livelessons video. There is so much to cover that, as you can imagine, it’s a tall order even for the two of us!

I’m also busily preparing for my talk with my buddy and Googler Ray Tsang at this week’s Google Cloud NEXT event on all things Pivotal and Google Cloud. We’re going to look at the bootiful Spring Cloud GCP project and, importantly, the new project jointly announced between Google and Pivotal just this morning, KNative, which serves as the platform on which we at Pivotal have built and deployed our Project Riff serverless function-as-a-service runtime. Do not miss it if you’re around!

Spring Social End of Life Announcement

Today it is with an optimistic look to the future that I am announcing the end of life for Spring Social, a project that I have had the pleasure to work with over the past eight years.

With the release of Spring Security 5, much of the functionality offered by Spring Social’s connection framework—which I consider the most valuable piece of Spring Social—is now part of Spring Security. In fact, I shared how to use Spring Security’s new support for client-side OAuth2 in a blog article from back in March. And as Spring Security continues to evolve its client-side OAuth support, Spring Social’s connection framework will continue to become more unnecessary. It simply no longer makes sense to have Spring’s OAuth story spread across so many projects—it’s time for a single cohesive OAuth story for Spring developers.

Hi Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week I’m fresh of the amazing Spring Connect São Paulo event and speaking with some customers, and now I’m in beautiful Rio de Janeiro soaking up the winter rays by he beach, connecting with people in the community, and delivering a (virtual!) 2 day live training course for O’Reilly on building cloud-native Java-based applications. In less than two days I’ll be home for the first time in almost a month to celebrate the 4th of July. If you’re in America, let me be the first to wish you a happy holiday. As usual, we’ve got a ton of things to dive into so I’ll leave you to it. Let’s get going.
