This Week in Spring - October 26th, 2021

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! How are you?

I’m doing well, as always. I literally just wrapped up presenting a fun session at the Russian Joker conference all about Spring and GraphQL. I got a ton of great questions from an enthusiastic audience. Thanks so much for joining me, everyone. I’ve got to get to other meetings, though, so let’s get this wonderful week in Spring out of the way!

Spot every Spring Boot application issue on the spot using AppDynamics!

Today, we are excited to announce the integration of AppDynamics in the Azure Spring Cloud for full stack observability.

Over the past 20 months, we worked with many enterprise customers to learn about the scenarios they face. Many of these customers have thousands of Spring Boot applications running in on-premises data centers. As they migrate these applications to the cloud, they need to instrument them for application performance monitoring (APM) using solutions their developers are familiar with and have been using for years. In addition, they must ensure continuity for desktop and mobile applications that are already pre-instrumented for end-to-end monitoring using agents like AppDynamics, which automatically discovers and maps all applications, microservices, and infrastructure as well as any dependencies in dynamic hybrid, multi-cloud environments. With the integration of AppDynamics in Azure Spring Cloud, you can continue your journey and easily instrument your Spring Boot applications with AppDynamics.

This Week in Spring - October 12th, 2021

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to yet another installment of This Week in Spring where we recap - with apologies to The Times - all the news that’s fit to reprint in the Spring and Spring-adjacent ecosystems. First: it’s almost Halloween! Can you believe it?? This year has absolutely flown by! I need to dust off my PHP costume for Halloween. Maybe I’ll even start using this particularly ghastly VS Code theme on the day…

Anyway, it’s been a busy week for me already and we’re only at the very beginning of Tuesday! I’ve been attending Kubecon (virtually), I spoke at the online I Code Java event at midnight and then this morning at 8am I was on the SnykLive discussion on the State of Java in 2021. Fun!
