As a means to better serve and understand its developer community, MarkLogic formed the SuperNodes group in summer 2011. Members of this select group are among the most experienced and knowledgable developers in our community. The purposes of the program are

  • To provide a direct connection between MarkLogic and power-users in our community.
  • To provide recognition and status to strong, active community members.
MarkLogic maintains a exclusive mailing list for SuperNode discussions. On occasion, MarkLogic shares early preview "NDA-style" information with SuperNodes via this list. Additional, benefits of membership include occasional discounts to MarkLogic events.

The current list of developers includes:

  Betty Harvey              Michael Fagan
  Darin McBeath             Rob Whitby
  David Lee (Honorary)      Ron Hitchens
  David Sewell              Ryan Grimm
  Florent Georges           Ryan Semerau (Honorary)
  Geert Josten              Sam Mefford
  Michael Blakeley          Shannon Shiflett
  Telly Stroumbis           Jakob Fix
  Craig Schlegelmilch
