This Month in Spring - March 2020

March 6, 2020 Josh Long

Hi, Spring fans! Can you believe it's already been a month since we last had the chance to talk? Time flies when you're having fun! I've been to Philadelphia, and to the amazing Devnexus conference. But, I haven't been to nearly so many places as I would normally go this time of year. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has delayed or canceled all the conferences and customer meetings that I was going to be at for the next two months at least. So, I've got more time to myself to focus on other things. And there is a lot to focus on!

I've been busy working on the podcast - complete with a brand new site -! Want to be notified of the latest episode? Follow the podcast (@BootifulPodcast) on Twitter! These episodes are in the roundup below, of course.

I've been busy working on new Spring Tips installments! Yep, that's right, we're back! Finally! At long last, I've started season 7 of the series. I've already got 6 episodes recorded and in the can, and I can't wait for you to start seeing them. This time around, I'm going to try to go the extra mile and write a blog for each video. So you'll get Spring Tips videos and blogs if that's the way you roll. And the episodes that have already been published are also in the roundup below, of course! Stay tuned to @SpringTipsLive for updates on the new episodes

And, of course, I've been hard at work on the Reactive Spring book. Buy now, read now, get the final edition later. You can find more about the book over at You can also follow the book's Twitter handle @ReactiveSpring for updates
