Rod Johnson SpringOne 2GX Keynote



Rod Johnson talks about what lies ahead for Spring, the new challenges and environment today, 10 years after the first line of Spring code was written. VMware’s plan with Spring is to continue investing in portability, productivity and innovation, making Spring the Java programming model for the cloud, and offering Code2Cloud, an integrated desktop-cloud development environment.


Rod Johnson is the founder of the Spring Framework, an open source project that begun in February 2003, and based on the Interface21 framework published with Johnson's best-selling Expert One-on-One J2EE Design and Development. Johnson is one of the world's leading authorities on Java and J2EE development.
