Atlanta Spring User Group's Inaugural Meeting!

Keith Donald will be ASUG's very first presenter! For those of you who did not have the pleasure of seeing his presentations at Devnexus, Keith is a principal and founding partner at SpringSource, the company behind Spring. He is best known in the Spring community for creating Spring Web Flow. At SpringSource, Keith is the lead of the Web Application Development Products Team. His team, based in Melbourne, Florida, sustains the development of Spring MVC and Web Flow and their associated integrations, and is also responsible for future innovations in the domain of web application development frameworks.

The meeting will begin at 6:30pm allowing members time to network, arrive and enjoy refreshments. At 7pm, ASUG will give an introductory presentation, and will be shortly followed at 7:15pm by Keith Donald's presentation. After Keith's presentation we will give away prizes that have been donated by our sponsors and then head downstairs to Aja for a happy hour mixer.

    Keith did a great job of providing an overview of Spring 3.0 features. I was particularly interested in his presentation of Roo. I had done some reading on Roo previously and was not clear on what it was or how it could be used. I now have a much better understanding and cannot wait to play!

    It was a great start. Having a Spring employee speak really lent credibility to the group's potential. Thanks to Kate @ eHire for setting it up. I suggest having Mark Fisher speak about Spring Integration if possible for one of the upcoming meetings.

    This was a great meetup. The information was presented clearly and concisely, the turnout was great, and Spring 3 is absolutely amazing.

    Great group, great topic, great speaker, great organizers! Only things not so great were location and parking ($7, ouch).

    It was a great meeting! I heard Keith was a good presenter and yesterday I had the opportunity to listen to his presentation in person. It was definitely worth the trip. I am glad I made it to the meeting. Thanks to Kate & eHire for putting it all together. And thanks for the pizza!

    I really enjoyed the meeting. It was very informative and Keith Donald was a great presenter and got into the nuts and bolts of Spring 3.0. Hat's off to Kate for starting the group. I thought the turn out was great for it to be the first meeting. The venue was top notch. The only downside was the cost of parking, but otherwise very well done!
