Marcus Olsson
Software Creative and Educator

Hi, I'm Marcus 👋

I'm a Software Developer with over ten years of building software for data infrastructure, cloud-native applications, and computer graphics.

By perpetually learning new concepts and technologies, applying them in interesting ways, and then teaching others how to do the same, I inspire a culture of creativity and learning in the teams I join.

As a Developer Advocate at Grafana Labs, I help community members build plugins for Grafana by supporting the plugin authors of today, and creating educational content for the plugin authors of tomorrow.
