Learning Spring Boot will help developers, beginner and seasoned, learn how to build powerful apps fast. We’ll introduce core pieces of Spring Boot and show how easy it is to focus on building functionality without getting hung up on unnecessary infrastructure and tedious low level APIs. All examples are built using the Spring Initializr site and a modern IDE.

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.
