Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 11th and 12th 2014
Josh Long is the Spring Developer Advocate. Josh is the lead author on Apress’ Spring Recipes, 2nd Edition, the O'Reilly "Pro Spring Roo" book, the Pearson "Livelessons for Spring" and a committer on several Spring projects and the Activiti BPMN framework. When he’s not hacking on code, he can be found at the local Java User Group or at the local coffee shop. Josh likes solutions that push the boundaries of the technologies that enable them. Josh's interests include big-data, mobile, REST, NoSQL and integration. He blogs on the Spring blog and [on his personal blog](http://joshlong.com).
Alright, so maybe "bootiful" won't ever work, but I tried,
and it was worth it too because you're reading this. Spring Boot, the
new convention-over-configuration centric framework from the Spring
team at Pivotal, marries Spring's flexibility with conventional,
common sense defaults to make application development not just fly,
but pleasant! Join Spring developer advocate Josh Long for a look at
what Spring Boot is, why it's turning heads, why you should consider
it for your next application (REST, web, batch, big-data, integration,
whatever!) and how to get started.
