Hi, Spring fans! As I write this I'm on a plane winging my way to Helsinki, Finland. A new year and new journeys begin. It's going to be cold there. Wish me luck! Do you know what always warms me up? The thrill of learning. And this week's no different. This week we've got some good stuff line up so let's get right into it!

Hi, Spring fans! Happy new year! It's 2023 already! Who saw that comin'? I sure didn't. This year promises to be more amazing than ever, and I can't wait to be a part of it.

As usual, the first week of January is when we mark the date of the first installment of this humble roundup, This Week in Spring, waaaay back in the first week of January 2011! 12 years of This Week in Spring! Now that's consistency!

And it's only possible because of you, dear community. Thank you. You, who have been consistently excellent every week of the year for years and years, are truly the reason for the season

I've been updating my blog, and a half dozen little side projects, to the new Spring Boot 3. This has given me a chance to do a little, shall we say, Spring cleaning, and also update my Github Actions to the latest and greatest. I'm pleasantly surprised…

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! I truly, absolutely, can not believe that we're nearly done with the year already! Have you made your new years' resolutions?
