Mark is known through his work as creator, main architect and principal founder of CFEngine the Norwegian tech company with users in 100+ countries (customers include IBM, eBay, Cisco, Qualcomm, AMD, US Navy, US Energy Department, NASA AT&T, Chevron and Linkedin). He has also created Promise Theory, the model behind CFEngine’s successful computer management software.

We will be also joined by Eirik Wahlstrøm, the visionary co-founder of Ludenso (ex MovieMask) -  the successful Norwegian startup that bridges the gap between the physical and digital world, by providing tools for thousands of developers through an open source platform for mobile AR. Eirik was the previous winner in Norway of Silicon Vikings Startup World Cup and participated in the global competition in Silicon Valley. We will be hearing from Eirik about his startup, Silicon Vikings and Startup World Cup experience.
