    Hi, I’m Mark O’Neil.

    I have been at Blackboard for 10 years. I work on the Product Management team and am responsible for our Platfrom and API management.

    Things I dig doing:

    • hanging out with family
    • remodeling my house
    • riding my motorcycles
    • making stuff

    I enjoy tech in all aspects - especially servers and coding. Docker and node.js are my current favs. I love hanging out getting to know folks in the community, problem solving, researching and developing solutions.
