This Month in Spring - August and September 2019

September 29, 2019 Josh Long

Hi Spring fans! I missed a month! Can you believe it! Things got too crazy, even for me! That's OK, because we're back and better than ever! This month I'll review the last two months of good stuff. And, keep in mind, we've got a lot to look forward to here. I love doing This Month in Spring installments! It's my opportunity to swim through the great content in the ecosystem and learn things and hopefully share interesting tidbits with you all. I mark my calendar by the number of This Month in Springs, so imagine my elation to realize looking at the calendar that we're really close to the epic SpringOne Platform 2019 event!

The event takes place soon (October 7–10, 2019) in Austin, Texas. I'll be there. I'll be doing a ton of things, as usual. I'll be co-presenting with Microsoft's Julien Dubois on, well, trust me - you don't want to miss this one! I'll also be co-presenting with Google's James Ward and Okta's Matt Raible on, well, you'll just have to take my word for it: you don't want to miss this one, either! 

SpringOne Platform is just around the corner, but I've still got to get to Taipei, Taiwan for the JCConf lead by the Taiwan JUG there. Then, finally, it's off to the land of BBQ and Spring, SpringOne Platform! I can't wait to see you all there.

It's been a busy few months! I've been trying to keep busy. I was just Guadalajara, Mexico for the Java Day Mexico event; Madrid, Spain, for CodeMotion Madrid; Victoria, Canada to meet with Redis Labs; Banff, Canada, for Voxxed Days Banff; San Francisco, CA, for Oracle CodeOne; Oslo, Norway, for JavaZone; Bangalore, India, for meetings and the Bangalore Java User Group; delightful Denver and Boulder, Colorado, for meetings with customers and my SpringOne Platform collaborators James Ward and Matt Raible; Sebastapol, California for O'Reilly's "Foo Camp"; and of course Austin, San Antonio, Dallas and Plano, Texas for meetings and user groups and so much more.

We've nary a moment to tarry so let's get to it!
