Greg L. Turnquist has developed software professionally since 1997. From 2002 to 2010, he was part of the senior software team that worked on Harris' $3.5 billion FAA telco program, architecting mission-critical enterprise apps while managing a software team. He provided after-hours support to a nation-wide telco system and is no stranger to midnight failures and software triages. In 2010, he joined the SpringSource division of VMware, which was spun off into Pivotal in 2013.

As a test-bitten script junky, Java geek, and JavaScript Padawan, he is a member of the Spring Data team as well as the mobile-oriented Allspark team. He has made key contributions to Spring Boot and Spring Data REST while also serving as Getting Started Guides, editor-at-large for http://spring.io/. He has migrated Spring Data release train's entire reference docs to Asciidoctor in a week. He has also contributed to multiple Spring portfolio projects.

He has worked with Java, Spring, Spring Security, AspectJ, and Jython technologies and has also developed sophisticated scripts for *nix and Windows platforms. As a wiki evangelist, he has also deployed a LAMP-based wiki website that provides fingertip knowledge to users.

In 2006, Greg created the Spring Python project. The Spring Framework provided many useful features, and he wanted these features to be available when he was working with Python. He has written Python Testing Cookbook and Spring Python 1.1 for Packt Publishing.

He has completed a Master's degree in Computer Engineering at Auburn University and lives in the United States with his family.
