This Month in Spring - February 2023

February 16, 2023 Josh Long

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Month in Spring! I'm in Chicago, Illinois, to meet some customers and have myself a grand ol' time in the windy city.

It's a new year, and things are getting better and better. I've been super busy on my new Youtube com/@coffeesoftware where I've got a ton of new content introducing different aspects of Spring.

Recently, I've been looking at Spring Batch in a whole series called Let's Code: Spring Batch. It's been an amazing run. Full of new insights. It's also been a ton of fun working hacking on code with folks who join the live stream (thank you, chat!)

Anyway, as busy as I've been, the community has been a far sight busier, and you can see it in some of the blogs below. So, without further ado, let's dive right into it!
