If you didn’t catch it, last week Packt released my Learning Spring Boot Video tutorial. It contains about four hours of in depth, hands-on coding with arguably the most popular Java stack out there – Spring Boot.
Starting this week, Learning Spring Boot 2nd Edition is now available for pre-order.
2nd Edition is targeted at Spring 5 + Spring Boot 2, which means we’ll be building reactive Java apps using Spring + Project Reactor (one of the hottest topics at this year’s SpringOne Platform conference).
If you want a hint of what reactive apps are, checkout Rossen and Stephane’s keynote.
Perhaps you’re wondering how you can pre-order a book for Spring Boot 2, when the project is currently at 1.4.1.BUILD-SNAPSHOT (as of this morning)? Spring Boot 1.5 is planned to be relatively light, while at the same time, a parallel effort to ramp up “bootiful” love for Spring 5 (reactive) will be underway.
And if you haven’t heard, I wrote this book’s predecessor using Asciidoctor. My code samples are pulled into the manuscript automatically by a simple script. I can iterate over the code, bump versions with ease, take advantage of Boot’s new features, and delay actually turning over the manuscript to my publisher. Plus, Packt and I are working hand in hand to align this with Spring Boot’s GA release of 2.0 slated for next spring.
Hang tight, and stay tuned as things move forward!
