Mark is a technical leader and senior software engineer with years of experience building Cloud Native and Open Source software.

He is an author, leader and maintainer in various Open Source projects including Dex (a federated OpenID Connect provide) and several high-profile Open Source (mostly Go) libraries including Viper.

Check out his GitHub profile for more of his work.

Developer Experience (DX) is another area of Mark’s interests: making sure that engineers can focus on their work instead of fighting tooling and processes is vital for an effective engineering process. Improving DX is a continuous process though, so you can often find him experimenting with build systems, creating boilerplate projects or building tools that make development easier.

In addition to building Cloud Native applications, he also spent years with building platforms for running these applications in the cloud and/or on Kubernetes, integrating well-known components from the Cloud Native landscape.
