In collaboration with the Spring User Group we are excited to have Craig Walls in town!
IMPORTANT: This Meeting is in Buckhead, 3500 Lenox Rd NE!
Spring offers a number of configuration options: XML configuration, Java configuration, and Groovy configuration to name a few. To some degree, component-scanning and autowiring help eliminate some explicit configuration. But in general most Spring applications require some essential "bootstrap" configuration to enable key functionality. What's the right way to build Spring applications when there are so many choices?
What if I told you that configuration was optional?
What if I told you that it is entirely possible to write a Spring application that is short enough to broadcast *twice* in a single tweet?
Spring Boot is an exciting new project that makes it extremely easy to create stand-alone, production-ready Spring applications. Spring Boot takes an opinionated approach to configuring Spring, making it possible to create Spring applications with little or, in some cases, no Spring configuration at all!

The meeting will begin at 6:30pm allowing members time to network, arrive and enjoy pizza. At 7pm, ASUG will give an introductory welcome, and will be shortly followed by the presentation. After the presentation we will be giving away some awesome schwag that was kindly donated to us by SpringSource. As always, everyone has the option to head downstairs to Aja for networking and drinks after the meeting.
Parking at the One Alliance Center is $10 max. If you wish to go to Aja after the meeting they will validate part of your parking. If parking is a problem, some members park at Phipps Plaza for free and walk over. ASUG does NOT validate parking.
