Hi Spring fans and welcome to another installment of This Month in Spring! What a month it's been since we last talked! I've been to, among other places, Tel Aviv, Israel; Vienna, Austria; Amsterdam, Netherlands; Seattle, Washington; Montreal, Canada; London, UK and Seattle, Washington. This week I'm in New York City for the Kafka Summit where I'll be joining the legendary Tim Berglund, head of developer experience at Confluent, and James Watters, SVP at Pivotal, to talk about why Pivotal (and Spring and Cloud Foundry) and Confluent (and Kafka, and Kafka Streams) are better together. Then, later today it's off to South Africa (for the SpringOne Tour installments there); Mauritius; Hangzhou, China; and then back to Los Angeles, among other places.
A particularly special note for the 15th anniversary of the Spring Framework, which was released on the 25th of March, 2004! Happy 15th birthday, Spring!
And without further ado, let's get to it!

- We're conducting a survey that looks at how we can improve the Spring Initializr (start dot Spring dot io), a topic near and dear to my heart. Please feedback here
Hi Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring!

- Interesting insight from Roy T. Fielding, the creator of REST and one of the major contributors to HTTP itself, on what "REST" is: "I disagree that the popular understanding of the term is different. What is different is the desire of certain companies, authors, and speakers to say REST when they know it is just HTTP; not because they don't know the meaning. Put another way: don't say "REST" when you're not using things like hypermedia (HATEOAS). I need to do better here, too.
