That’s everything – I’ll be back in two weeks to bring you some more events.

I would just like to mention before I go that we have a contract opportunity for a Technical Lead at a leading enterprise software solutions provider- they are looking for people who are fanatical about Spring and have a passion for Agile practices.


They are particularly interested in senior people who love open source and have the ability to lead teams on greenfield projects.

If anyone is interested or knows anyone that would be interested then please let Barry or myself know.

Enjoy the long weekend everyone and see you in two weeks!
