Spring Boot, the new convention-over-configuration framework from the Spring team at Pivotal, marries Spring's flexibility with conventional, common sense defaults to make application development not just fly, but pleasant. Join Spring Developer Advocate Josh Long for a look at what Spring Boot is, why it's turning heads, why you should consider it for your next application (i.e., REST, web, batch, big-data, and integration), and how to get started.
