This Month in Spring - March 2023

March 8, 2023 Josh Long

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment to This Month in Spring. We're already in the fabulous month of March! I can't believe it. Spring time is nearly here! And the days are going to get longer soon. It's my favorite time of the year!

I've been keeping super busy since the last time we spoke! I've doing almost daily livestreams over on my little Youtube channel, talking about PostgreSQL, Kubernetes, Java, Kotlin, Spring, and so much more. I'm also doing a little bit of travel in the weeks and months ahead, and I hope to see you there! I should be at Devnexus, Spring IO, Kotlin Conf, Devoxx GR, the Utrecht JUG, Devoxx UK, and a few others. As always, stay tuned to my Twitter (@starbuxman) for the latest and greatest.

Alright, my friends, let's dive right into it. There's just too much, and we gotta start somewhere!
