This is my personal website. So who is Mark Verber? I am a husband, father, son, and brother to my family. I am a Christian who tries to embrace love, justice, mercy, simplicity, and mindfulness. I am a systems thinker who wants to make a difference in the world. I believe that the world is complex with far more inter-connections than most people realize… so small changes can often make a huge impact. I think society can be best judged by how it treats those with the least power.
I have spent most of my career in what is today called DevSecOps: the intersection of engineering, program management, IT, security, with a dash of research. To quote a former boss, I efficiently build durable, reliable systems without leaving a mess behind. I like to say that I build systems which have “good bones” which are able to adapt to changing requirements. When I started my career we simple called this systems programming and building scalable system.
This website which was started in 1990 and continued to be hand edited HTML. Now that it’s 2018, I have decided to modernize by converting to WordPress. A lot of “new” posts are really old content that is finally being updated. I sometimes tweet things I find interesting.
