TechCast #74 – Part 1 – An interview with Rod Johnson on the Spring Framework and Scala
This interview is a walk through the lead up to and the creation of the Spring Framework with no founder Rod Johnson. Recently, Rod left the company sponsoring Spring, VMware Corporation, and joined up as a board member of TypeSafe to advise them on the future of Scala and other projects.
The podcast, then, is broken into two parts – the first part focuses on Rod’s history in creating Spring, what makes it compelling, and how it has developed over the years.
The next part, which will appear on TechCast #75, will focus on Scala, a language that has become more popular of late. Rod is currently advising TypeSafe, the sponsors and creators of Scala, and he has been working on a project for several months totally written in the Scala language.
