Spring User Group in the North West

Last night was the inaugrial North West Spring User Group.

There were two speakers, Jan Machacek of Cake Solutions and a joint author of Pro Spring 2.5 and Rob Harrop from SpringSource and also joint author with Jan on the original 'Pro Spring' book

Jan gave an excellent worked example of a small web application using Spring 3.0 and Rob also ran a worked example on REST development in Spring. Rob's talk was particularly interesting and brave in that he was willing to show the REST development at the cutting edge and show and admit to its weaknesses with it being only at milestone release.

There will be future meetings and you can follow them at the Linkedin User group
