Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! It's the week before SpringOne Platform and things are crazy! We have so much to cover —as usual — but first, it's time for some poetry (with apologies to Clement Clark Moore):
'twas the week before SpringOne Platform, when all throughout Spring;
Not a creature was stirring, just the computers and things;
the expectations were raised by the community with care;
in hopes that SpringRod would soon be there;
That's right! This year is fixing to be AMAZING! We're going to have Spring founder, Rod Johnson, Jenny Zhang, Siew Choo Soh, Neha Narkhede, Matt Raible, Ray Tsang, Lauren Knausenberger, Juergen Hoeller, Bruno Borges, Andrew Clay Shafer, and the rest of the Spring team! It feels like just a little bit (December!) that we just had the last one, so I can't believe how quickly this one has arrived, but I can't wait!
Right now, I'm bouncing between San Francisco, CA; Atlanta, GA; Columbus, GA; Los Angeles, CA, and I'm enjoying the conferences and customers with whom I'm visiting, but I'm really excited to be at SpringOne Platform and am counting down the days!
Just think! The next time I write this roundup, I'll be in Washington D.C. for SpringOne Platform 2018! Without further ado, let's get to it!
