Spring Boot with Josh Long

Spring Framework is an application framework for Java and JVM languages. Spring was originally built around dependency injection, but grew to become an entire ecosystem of tools and plugins for Java developers.

Spring was originally released 15 years ago, and since then a lot has changed around application development. For example, many engineers deploy applications to the cloud in microservices architectures. The expectations around frameworks has also changed, with the rise of Django, Ruby on Rails, and NodeJS.

Spring Boot takes an opinionated view of building production-ready Spring applications. By taking an opinionated view, Spring Boot gets engineers up and running faster than the traditional Spring framework. Josh Long is a Spring Developer Advocate at Pivotal and he joins the show to discuss Spring Boot and the history of the Spring Framework.
