My name is Luke Shannon and I am a Java programmer and Software Architect living and working in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

I got started programming Java in 2003 while working for Nativeminds in San Francisco California. I continued this journey working freelance at small start ups till 2006 when I discovered the Spring Framework (it was love at first site) while working for Jaspersoft.

I followed my love of Spring to join the VMWare vFabric team, which eventually became Pivotal.

During my career I have spent focused time on following technologies:

  • Gemfire/Geode
  • Spring Framework (Core, Boot, Web, Security mainly)
  • JasperReports API
  • Pivotal Cloud Foundry

This site is intended to share some knowledge around these technologies.

Opinions on this are my own and not the views of my employer.
