Elton StonemanDeveloper Advocate@eltonstoneman
I’m a Pluralsight Author, Microsoft MVP and Developer Advocate at Docker. I’ve been architecting and delivering successful solutions with Microsoft technologies since 2000, most recently Big Data and API implementations in Azure, and distributed applications with Docker. Currently I’m interested the evolution of the Microsoft stack, exploring the great opportunities to modernize existing .NET Framework apps with Docker, and run them alongside new .NET Core apps in Windows and Linux containers. I’m a regular presenter and workshop host at conferences. I’ve been fortunate to speak at NDC, DockerCon, SDD, DevSum, Container Camp and Future Decoded. You’ll often see me at user groups too – Docker London, London DevOps and WinOps are my locals.
