The Spring Platform, Where its Been and Where its Going

Early this month, armed with my trusty Flipcam (and oldie but a goody), I attended SpringOne Platform hosted by by  While there I was able to grab a few interviews with some of the movers and shakers.  Given that the title of the event was “SpringOne,” I would have been remiss had I not grabbed one of the Spring community leaders.  I was able to convince Spring Framework developer, Rossen Stoyanchev of Pivotal to chat with me.

Take a listen as Rossen talks about the history and evolution of the Spring Framework.

Some of the ground Rossen covers

  • Spring Framework’s birth 12 years ago and the role of Rod Johnson’s book
  • Providing tools that simplify and symbiotically work with Java Enterprise
  • Additional Spring Projects e.g. Web Frameworks, Spring Integration, Spring Batch
  • The debut of Spring Boot in 2012 and the quick follow up by Spring Cloud which extended programming to new models
  • Where Spring is headed: reactive programming and much more
