This Week in Spring - November 26th, 2019

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to yet another installment of This Week in Spring! This week, I’m in Tokyo, Japan, for the Pivotal Summit Japan event. I’ve regretfully had to miss the China and Korea events because of a famly emergency, so it’s nice to be able to make this, the last stop on the tour, before returning to California to celebrate Thanksgiving with the family.

And, on that note… it’s almost Thanksgiving in the US. Thanksgiving is a time for us in the US to reflect on that for which we’re thankful. I think I speak for the entire Spring team when I say that we are very grateful for you all, dear (worldwide) community! Happy Thanksgiving, all!
