Knut Sveidqvist, CTO of Mermaid Chart, has joined the DEVOPSdigest Vendor Forum.
Sveidqvist is one of the principal creators of Mermaid. He brings 30+ years of experience in development, coding and project management. He was named CTO of Mermaid Chart by Open Core Ventures, the firm founded by GitLab's Sid Sijbrandij that elevates open-source projects into fully operational software companies.
Mermaid Chart is a collaboration platform for text-based diagrams, process design and certification that helps development teams improve their documentation process and communicate more efficiently. Mermaid Chart offers solutions on top of and in alignment with Mermaid, the open-source diagramming and charting tool built by the company's founders. The Mermaid Chart platform allows development teams to remove the clumsy design layer by creating complex diagrams based on markdown-style code – and includes features for improved editing, real-time collaboration, simplified sharing and version control.
