This Year in Spring - 2016 edition

Welcome to a very special This Week in Spring! Every year we wrap up with a recap of highlights from the year. This year’s no different! It’s been a heckuva year, and the Pivotal Spring and Cloud Foundry teams seem to deliver bigger and better tech every passing day. If you’ve been following This Week in Spring then you’ll no doubt be aware of the changes! It’s hard to keep up, even for me, with the dizzying pace of releases!

So, here are the top five things I’d encourage people to review from 2016:

This Week in Spring - December 20, 2016

Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This week I’m in the winter wonderland of Toronto, Canada, hanging out with the amazing Pivotal Labs Toronto office and working with some of the largest financial institutions in all of Canada as they transition to Spring Cloud and to Pivotal Cloud Foundry. I love seeing seemingly large, lumbering companies run at startup speeds and crave it.

This week is the week of Christmas for some in the world, followed shortly by the western western new year. If you celebrate either (or both) of them, then, on behalf of the Spring team, let me wish you the happiest of holidays! I, for one, can’t believe we’re now less than two weeks away from 2017 (and with it, the beginning of the 7th year writing This Week in Spring!)

Spring Cloud Spinnaker 1.0.0.M3

Greetings Spring community,

I am happy to release the second milestone for Spring Cloud Spinnaker. Spring Cloud Spinnaker bundles up the continuous delivery Spinnaker platform, and provides a 1-click installer to let you install it to any certified Cloud Foundry provider.

UPDATE: This blog post originally cited M2, however one of our early adopters spotted a critical bug, so M3 has been built and released with the fix in hand.

Key features included in this release:

  • Much more simplified way to login, select your org and space from dropdowns, etc., shooting for as simple an experience as possible.

  • Ability to manage two CF spaces

  • Support for Jenkins and Travis CI monitoring.

  • Configure email and slack notifications

  • Move to hosted uber JARs, meaning installing the installer is no longer a bugbear

  • Other enhancements regarding to Spinnaker itself include ability to clone server groups, an upgrade to our Reactor-based cf-java-client 2 library, and also enhance UX showing more CF information than ever.

This Week in Spring - December 13th, 2016

Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! This year has flown so quickly by! Can you believe we’re less than 19 days until 2017? I’m utterly stunned. I suppose I shouldn’t be, though, given the breakneck speed of progress and new software releases from the Spring team and the community. What a good problem to have!

This week, after returning from Australia early Sunday morning, I hacked with my buddy Josh McKenty, I spoke with my buddy Baruch at the San Francisco Java User Group on Monday, will speak with my buddy Matt Raible at the Denver Java User Group on Wednesday (don’t miss it!), and will speak in Saint Louis on Thursday and Hartford on Friday. It’s going to be a fun week and if you’re around, don’t hesitate to say hi.

We’ve got a lot to cover so let’s get to it!
