This past week, the Spring Data team had a face-to-face meeting. And it was fan-TASTIC! I had entered the meeting with sort of an average-to-below average feeling and left feeling energized, excited, and with a stronger sense of purpose than I had felt in a while.

So what happened? Did our team leader tell jokes? Did we spend the whole time telling war stories of past and present work life? Did our team manager promise us a rich bounty of double bonus pay and equity grants?
