This Month in Spring - August 2022

August 18, 2022 Josh Long


Hi, Spring fans!

What a crazy month it's been since we last spoke! I went on vacation for a couple of weeks. I hung out in Maui, saw some beautiful turtles, swam with beautiful fish, etc. I miss the islands, but now that I'm back at my desk and focused on the neverending mission to bring Spring here, there, and everywhere, I'm overjoyed by all the exciting things coming in the months ahead.

I'm also keeping busy, appearing at various shows, and would love to see you at any of these shows. I just spoke at the fabulous Kansas City Developer Conference (KCDC). I'll be speaking at the Devoxx Ukraine online event, in support of Ukraine. I'll be speaking at the Cloud Builders Conf, online, on August 23rd, 2022, also in support of Ukraine. I'll be speaking at JavaOne in Las Vegas, NV. I'll be speaking at SpringOne later this year in San Francisco, CA. I'll be speaking at Devoxx in Antwerp, Belgium. I'll be speaking at Kafka Summit, in Austin, Texas. I'll be speaking at J4K 2022, online. I think that's it, for now. I'm sure I've forgotten some, so stay tuned for more!

Now then, without further ado let's dive right into this month's insane roundup.
