About Mark Miller
As a DevSecOps Community Advocate for Sonatype, I build massive online community projects. The most recent project is All Day DevOps 2017, with 32,927 registrations.
Malcom Gladwell would call me "A Connector". Wherever I go, one of the things I am most happy with is the ability to introduce people to each other, making connections where they didn't previously exist. I've done this on every continent in the world as part of an ongoing desire to see connections where other people see differences.
My main expertise is in developing and supporting live online communities built around specific market verticals. These online communities bleed over into the real world, where relationships are strengthened and expanded.
