Sorry Planet Python

I just moved all the blogs I wrote about Spring Python over here, and asked Michael Foord to update Planet Python’s feed to point hear instead. I forgot that it would probably repost everything. Well I guess it’s kind of like an extra media blitz. Just so you are up to date:– Spring Python is…

I’m going to work for SpringSource

Starting January 11th, I’m going to be working for SpringSource. I told my daughter and look what she had to say!   I’m glad she approves.   No, they didn’t hire me to work on Spring Python. That is still in my spare time. Hopefully, I can become sponsor and not have to bug Mark…
