Hey there,

It feels like SpringOne Platform was only yesterday, and I'm so excited by what's coming in September! It’s yet another excuse to chat, exchange, share, have a drink, and enjoy quality time with the Spring and Reactor communities, contributors and users alike.

I'll tell you a secret: as the project Reactor lead, this is one of my favorite places to capture amazing feedback and translate it into pull requests. I like spending hours replaying the software history with folks, talking about efficient distributed systems (or "microservices") because--Bingo! Reactive is all about these…
