Principal DevOps Advocate
Tl;dr: “Mark is an engineer who can speak”.
As Principal DevOps Advocate, Mark adapts advanced engineering methods, technology, and culture to accelerate the business needs of Nutanix customers, partners, and employees.
Fun fact: Mark first touched the Internet in 1991 when sponsored to do undergraduate research. After graduating Boston University with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and suffering from Internet withdrawal, he joined the first national, commercial Internet Service Provider (before the world wide web).
[editor note: wow! Where were you in 1991? Some of us were still learning to talk, let alone conquer the Internet!)
Operator disconnected: is developer relations forgetting the people who run the software in production?
Developer Relations is an evolving field and can be affected by industry shifts. The world is rapidly moving to cloud developers and they are being asked to run what they build, meanwhile the operators are writing more code to automate business. Is your developer relations program expanding to these audiences, how are operators and developers different, and can your team handle DevOps culture?
Hear from Nutanix’s Luke Kilpatrick, Senior Manager of DevOps Marketing and Mark Lavi Principal DevOps Advocate on how to add operators into your developer relation programs pipeline and expand and bring DevOps to all.
