This Week in Spring - Happy New Year 2023 edition - December 27th, 2022

Josh Long December 27, 2022

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! It?s 27 December as I write this and - being honest - I couldn?t be happier. It?s raining outside. I?m in a warm cozy office. Good music is playing. People are asleep in my home. I can hear the raindrops and wind outside the window. I?m at peace as I code. And code I have. I?ve been updating my blog, and a half dozen little side projects, to the new Spring Boot 3. This has given me a chance to do a little, shall we say, Spring cleaning, and also update my Github Actions to the latest and greatest. I?m pleasantly surprised by how many builds I?ve switched over to 3.0 and then used the AOT engine to build a GraalVM native image and it just worked!

How were or are your holidays going? My family and I had a lovely Christmas, which we don?t take for granted how hard the world seems to be these days. We?re all making our new years resolutions and preparing for the exciting new year ahead, too. When next we talk, it?ll be 202*3*! So, let me say in advance: happy new year!! Today?s the 27th, but by the 30th here in California it?ll start being 2023 for some people in other parts of the world. It?s crazy how fast time flies! And that?s also true with roundups! I just wrote last week?s, and here we are writing another! There?s always a lot to cover so let?s dive right into it!
