This Week in Spring - November 16th, 2021

Engineering | Josh Long | November 16, 2021 | ...

Hi, Spring fans! Can you believe it's nearly December 2021? I'm still getting used to the idea that we're already in 2021 and now the year's nearly behind us! Stop the world, I want off! Time's flying.

I've been up to my eyeballs in Spring Tips video production. I can't wait for you to see tomorrow's installment (@SpringTipsLive)!

We've also got some great podcast interviews lined up. As always, new episodes drop on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, etc., every Thursday night (California time)/Friday (for most of the world). Don't miss it (@BootifulPodcast)!

You could also just check out my blog ( for the upcoming appearances, podcasts, Spring Tips videos, etc. The trouble is that the blog is otherwise pretty boring. My boring content notwithstanding, it's a plain l'il page on the internet, and I've been wanting to mix it up…

Engineering | Josh Long | November 09, 2021 | ...

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! How're you doin'? I'm doing alright! It's been raining cats and dogs here in San Francisco. California, the state where I live, dearly needs the rain, so it's a positive, I suppose. But it still feels miserable. Between the daylights savings time shortening the daylight significantly and the rain, it's a gloomy kind of day. At least there's a lot of good stuff to read! Let's dive right into it!

Update on EOL for Spring Security OAuth

Engineering | Joe Grandja | November 08, 2021 | ...
