This Week in Spring - November 10th, 2020

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! It’s November 10th, 2020, as I write this and I, for one, can not believe that we’re closer to 2021 than we are to 2019 at this point. That’s insane. Time has absolutely rocketed by in some senses and stood utterly still in others. Odd year, this one.

I hope you’re all doing well! I’m at the Reactive Summit today (virtually, of course). This afternoon I was on a wonderful panel with all sorts of folks from around the ecosystem. And soon, around 17:30 or so, if memory serves, I’ll be speaking about RSocket and its use in the Spring ecosystem.

This Week in Spring - October 20, 2020

Hi Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! How’re things? It’s been unseasonably warm here in San Francisco so I am writing this from my balcony with a warm cup of coffee and hope in my heart. It is still very hard to believe we’re near Halloween, though! Crazy how time flies. There’s lots of good stuff to look at this week so let’s get to it! Hopefully you can enjoy this week’s news from some warm, safe and healthy spot in your life, too.
