Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! In the US, Monday was a public holiday, so today, Tuesday, feels a bit like Monday and I was happily going through the Monday motions and then I got a reminder that I had to write this week's installment! Oops! Thank goodness for technology.
I'm at San Francisco International Airport about to board a fight for the Washington DC edition of the SpringOne Tour. Are you going to be in Washington DC? Reach out and say hi! My direct messages on Twitter are correct, too.
Then, it's off to Kansas City, KS/MO for, among other things, an appearance at the Kansas City JUG this Thursday, February 21, 2019. Again, join us!
