This Month in Spring - May 2019

June 10, 2019 Josh Long

Hi Spring fans! Can you believe it? We're already almost halfway through June! It's been an insanely busy month in Spring! I've been in beautiful Sao Paolo, Brazil for QCon Sao Paolo; London, UK, for Devoxx UK; Amsterdam and Eindhoven, NL; San Francisco, USA (for SpringOne Tour San Francisco; it's nice going home - even if it's for a show!); Barcelona, Spain (twice!); Cork, Ireland; Zurich, Switzerland; Paris, France; Minsk, Belarus; Krakow, Poland; and Paris, France. I also got to go home and see my kid graduate middle school. It's been a wonderful month, but that was the highlight. I hope you're having a wonderful month and I hope you're curious! Check out all this good stuff.

I've also been hard at work on my new book, _Reactive Spring_ (now available for early-access on Leanpub!) and I've been working on my little podcast, @BootifulPodcast, and on my weekly @SpringTipsLive screencast series. We're _just_ about to wrap up season 6! I'm stunned by how much we've gotten done, and how quickly.

Work is afoot on the next edition of SpringOne Platform 2019 at the Austin Convention Center, October 7–10, 2019. This show figures to be bigger and better than ever! Have you purchased your tickets? Do it _now_!
