I am a senior developer and manager at IBM specializing in Cloud Computing with DB2 LUW.
Mark Wilding is a physics graduate from the University of Western Ontario. Software was always a personal passion until Mark joined the computer science industry in 1994. Before joining IBM, Mark was a security expert and designed one of the first protocol interpreting firewalls but also held roles as a business owner, system/network administrator and a role as a software developer. Mark joined IBM in 1996 and has worked with DB2 LUW ever since. Today, Mark is an STSM at IBM who specializes in DB2, Unix/Linux, software quality, serviceability, reliability, automated support and most recently, cloud computing.
