Elton Stoneman

Elton Stoneman

Developer Advocate at Docker
Blog: https://blog.sixeyed.com/
Twitter: @EltonStoneman

In addition to his developer advocacy work at Docker in the U.K., Stoneman also is a Pluralsight author. He’s got a “Getting Started with Docker” course that newbies may want to check out. But he’s also got other big-data, Azure, PowerShell and other courses there.

Stoneman also is a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional in the Azure area. He describes himself as being interested in “the expansion of the Microsoft Stack outside of the normal boundaries,” meaning things like .NET Core on Linux and Docker on Azure. He’s a frequent conference speaker on Docker and other topics.

Microsoft has been doing a lot of collaborative work with Docker over the past few years. If you’ve been wanting to know how to run any application in Docker (but were afraid to ask), Stoneman’s got just the post for you:
