About Mark:

Mark (@MarkXA) is an Azure MVP based on the beautiful North Coast of Northern Ireland. He's been a professional developer since the 1980s and freelance since 2000, working on a myriad of projects for everything from local startups and councils to multinational corporations and federal government departments. These days he spends almost as much time on architecture and infrastructure as on code. While something of a technology omnivore, particularly if it's new and shiny, he currently tends towards Xamarin and React front-ends sitting on top of highly scalable Azure services, using a functional and reactive approach. In his spare time he's a STEM Ambassador, CoderDojo mentor, Barefoot volunteer and organiser of the Northern Ireland Developer Conference.
