turtle power! I met this turtle in the oceans of Maui

Aloha, my friends, from Hawai'i, where I'm currently on vacation! Because I'm on vacation, I'll cut to the chase: there's a lot of great stuff to get to this month (surprise!). But first, did you see the friendly turtle in the photo? I don't know what the turtle's name is, but it sure seems friendly.

I am, meanwhile, blown away that we're already staring down August 2021! This year seems to be racing by! (Especially compared to 2020!)

Did you see the latest installment of SpringOne Tour? If not, get on it! In this July 2021 installment of SpringOne Tour, join Cora Iberkleid, Madhura Bhave, Bella Bai, Olga Maciaszek-Sharma, Whitney Lee, Nate Schutta and me for a look at the wide and wonderful world of testing, continuous integration, and continuous delivery for Kubernetes-ready, Cloud Native Spring Boot applications.

Now then, where were we? Oh right! We've got a ton of good stuff to get to this last month so let's dive right in!
