There's a new Atlanta Spring User Group. They've had two meetings so far, and a lot of members right off the bat. "What's Spring?" you ask. It's a Java/J2EE application platform, released under the Apache 2.0 license.You may have hear of some of its parts: Groovy and Grails. They seem to be closely tied to VMWare.

    In this session, we're going to combine the magic of Spring Boot and the magic of Spring Data to yield something even more powerful. You'll see how to quickly build an application's persistence layer, whether it stores data in a RDBMS, Mongo, Neo4j, or several other popular data stores. You'll also see how to create a functioning REST API with nothing more than an interface and a domain type.

    Spring Boot dramatically simplifies application development with Spring. But before Spring Boot came along, Spring Data was already making developers' lives easy when it comes to working with data. When combined, Spring Data and Spring Boot can make data persistence the easiest part of your application.


    Craig Walls is a senior engineer with Pivotal as the Spring Social project lead and is the author of Spring in Action and Spring Boot in Action. He's a zealous promoter of the Spring Framework, speaking frequently at local user groups and conferences and writing about Spring. When he's not slinging code, Craig spends as much time as he can with his wife, two daughters, 2 birds and 2 dogs.
