Hi Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! I flew 14 hours to Tel Aviv, Israel.

Then I flew another 14 hours back to San Francisco, CA where I presented for a four-hour online course on using Kotlin with Spring Boot. Tonight I’ll fly to Atlanta, GA for the incredible DevNexus conference where I’ll be presenting (twice) with the good Dr. Venkat Subramaniam on Kotlin (and Spring) and more. Tomorrow, I’m doing a four hour course on testing. Join me!
