This Week in Spring - May 28, 2019

Hi Spring fans! What a week it’s been since we last spoke! I was in Zurich, Switzerland; then Paris, France; then Minsk, Belarus; and now I’m in Barcelona, Spain for the epic JBCN show. I’ve recorded a few episodes for the podcast (✅), gave a talk (✅) and now have a workshop to deliver on Wednesday (✅). Fun week by the beach! Don’t worry about me, I’ll pull through..

Spring en la primavera

….And I’m not going anywhere until Thursday when I’ll fly home to San Francisco, USA to see our kid graduate middle school! I’m so proud of her. What a legend.

Spring Cloud Data Flow 2.1 GA Released

The Spring Cloud Data Flow team is pleased to announce the release of 2.1 of Data Flow.

We have a brand new website with great new content, which is where you can find our getting started guide for use on Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes and your Local Machine.

Here are the highlights:

New Dedicated Data Flow Website

The Data Flow team takes pride is openly communicating with the community in various forums including StackOverflow, Gitter, GitHub, Twitter, and at times in Email and Zoom calls even.

However, we realized that we could provide a much better experience to answer common questions and provide an easier on-ramp to using Data Flow if we focused on improving the online documentation. The reference guide was not the ideal format to achieve that goal, so we embarked on creating a new website - - that acts as the hub for learning about all things Data Flow related.


This Week in Spring - May 21, 2019

Hi Spring fans! It’s been quite a crazy week! I was in Spring I/O last week in Barcelona, Spain and there was a deluge of interesting news to come out of the show! I loved the show - a sort of mini SpringOne - and am chomping at the bit to see what comes next. I’m now beginning a small tour starting in Zurich, Switzerland; then I’m off to the paradise-like Paris, France for the epic SpringOne Tour event there, then I’m off to Minsk, Belarus; then off to Barcelona, Spain for JBCN, and then - finally - home for the middle school graduation of my kid at the end of the month. So much exciting stuff culminating in an even more exciting event, I can hardly stand it!


Pivotal Cloud Foundry is 5 years old, here’s how it changed my life...

Josh Long often says that “production is the best place on the Internet.” But where I used to work, developers needed to negotiate with operations, networks, and security before their code could go anywhere near this promised land.

Understandably, each of these disciplines seemed to have the same hidden agenda: change is bad. Experience had taught us that change was difficult and error-prone, so as a company we’d become risk-averse and cautious about our deployments. Releases were infrequent and large. There was plenty that could go wrong.
