My name is Matt Turner.

I recently started working with XQuery - the query language for XML - as part of my Job at Mark Logic (which makes MarkLogic Server).

I'm writing this blog to share the fun, challenging and sometimes mind blowing things I discover as I learn and use XQuery.

Before joining Mark Logic I worked at Sony Music creating publishing, community and identity applications.

Way way back I was at PC World Online where we did an XML Publishing system. Some info on that project:

Oh how we wish we had XQuery.

I am now based in New York City and having just as much fun as ever doing XML projects.
