This Month in Spring - July 2022

July 19, 2022 Josh Long

Will we see you at SpringOne 2022? I'll be there! 

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Month in Spring! Can you believe it's already been a month since we last spoke? Me either. Because it hasn't! I'm writing this a little ahead of time because I'm going on vacation for a bit, and I didn't want to miss this! It's summertime (in the Northern Hemisphere, anyway), and the vacation game is strong, but that doesn't mean that we should stop learning. Quite the contrary: if it's overly hot outside, it's nice to be able to dive into something relaxing and educational on a hot day! And it has indeed been hot out there of late. I've seen news reports of varying levels of concern. Apparently, it's so hot that they're shutting down airports in the UK! I can't even believe it. I can believe it in places like Phoenix, AZ (where I've lived, dear reader), where it routinely gets to 100+ degrees. (Wow. I just checked the weather, and it's 110 Farenheit there! That's 43.3 Celcius. That's hotter than your CPU when running Slack!) Be careful out there, my friends.

Make sure to have a little fun, though.  The darker, colder days are coming soon, and you don't wanna say you missed out on the good weather if you have it. Do you know what else is coming soon? Almost as if to rejuvenate the colder, darker months? SpringOne 2022! And it's being held in my hometown of San Francisco, CA, where I live, in person, December 6-8th, 2022! I'll be there and so will thousands of others. I hope you'll join us!

We've got a ton of cool stuff to dive into, so let's get right to it!

C'ya in August!
