  • Josh Long is probably fun(ny), but I don't get it

    Every time I see him talking I either can't take him seriously or I'd feel like the most lame person not to use Boot on Java 8. Understanding Spinal Tap references doesn't help. Luckily most of other Spring/Pivotal guys shine with more of ... well, humility, sort of. Many developers can't simply shift anything to newest technologies. I'm lucky to be in team that can decide what they want and we are on the newest Spring/Java stack, but I know what it is when you can't. Now go to some conference and try to feel not to be ridiculed by remarks like this. I'm pretty sure that for many it can ruin the content which is completely avoidable. Testing with Spring 4.x was normal presentation.
