I just shipped out my last rewrite for Learning Spring Boot. I am TIRED. The past five nights, I have stayed up later than midnight to get in last edits and incorporate feedback from my reviewers.
These guys are really talented. I couldn’t ask for a more solid team to pick over my material and offer substantial feedback. It can be humbling at times. But the reward is tremendous. I really hope this book meets a lot of people’s needs.
I have overheard those not quite familiar with Spring Boot try to capture it in a single statement. “This is Dropwizard.” “This is a web app in 100 lines or less.”
Sorry, but Spring Boot is WAY more than that. My book tries to cover quite a bit of ground, but as I concluded in my closing sentence, “This is only the beginning.” Spring Boot tackles LOTS of things, and makes them easier. And it’s just getting started. Frankly, I’m not sure what it will look like a few short years from now. But for the time being, I’m very satisfied at getting this written and edited. I hope you enjoy it.
