I heard :) One my goals as a contributor is to make the project easier
to consume for new people, whether they are users or contributors. I
think having quickstarts will get us some traction with those
developers that don't do Java regularly, or are new to it as a
programming language. If we can give those people a few building
blocks to use that will accelerate their project startup time/POC
development and give them warm feelings about what a nice experience
it was :)
