A Bootiful Podcast: open-web legend Dion Almaer

Hi, Spring fans! In this special midweek installment I (Josh Long) correct a mistake I made last week when I inadvertently released the episode featuring open-web legend Dion Almaer with the interview I conducted with the inspirational and oh-so-amazing Spring Batch co-lead Mahmoud Ben Hassine. This is the actual episode with Dion Almaer (@dalmaer) who is known for so many contributions to the Java ecosystem and beyond. I know him as a former editor in chief of TheServerSide.com, but you may know him for his work championing the open web at Palm, Walmart, and Google, and many more.

The goal of this and subsequent posts on the subject is to share some ideas and the work we’ve been doing here at Spring to anticipate and handle greater adoption of Cloud Events.
