Bootiful Spring Boot 3.x

Track: Frameworks
Spring Framework 6.x and Spring Boot 3.x are almost here and you know what that means? New .jars! And also new baselines and new possibilities! Spring Framework implies a Java 17 and Jakarta EE baseline, and offers new support for building GraalVM-native images. It also offers a new observability layer, an amalgamation of some of the work in the Micrometer project and Spring Cloud Sleuth. Spring Boot 3 builds upon all of this, and integrates all of this into our application. Join me, Spring Developer Advocate Josh Long (@starbuxman), and we'll look at next-gen Spring and learn why, with Spring taken together with Java 21, there's never been a better time to Java developer.
