I am Joel M Turner
My professional role is Senior Product Engineer (Frontend) at Sprinklr, where I help support the visualization products. Through this avenue, I have been able to contribute to some great projects such as the World Health Organization Covid-19 Dashboard, the Covid HQ Africa Dashboard, and Sprinklr.com.
How I Got Here
I grew up in the beautiful city of Laramie, Wyoming. After graduating with a degree in graphic design in 2005, I spent my summers living on glaciers in Alaska. It was there that I started to teach myself how to code, writing PHP and CSS on paper and entering it into my computer during my days off in town.
Fast forward a few years and I’m now working as a developer for Sprinklr, where I get to use awesome technologies like TypeScript, React, MobX, and Gatsby to build amazing projects. In my free time, I love dabbling in hand lettering and illustration, and I share my work on Instagram. I even have my own illustration page where I showcase my “best of” creations.
Overall, I’ve had a really fun and interesting journey so far, and I can’t wait to see where my love of coding takes me next!
I now live with my wife, Suzanne Turner, our two children, and our two dogs in Portland, Oregon.
