Microsoft MVP | Pluralsight Author | Dev Advocate @ Docker

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 DockerCon, NDC, DevSum, ProgNet, SDD, Container Camp and Future Decoded. You’ll often see me at user groups too – Docker London, London DevOps and WinOps are my locals.

Just what is a “service mesh”, and if I get one will it make everything OK?

Communication is the backbone of distributed applications. Imagine you could control that backbone independently of all the components, so your application code just makes simple calls to other services, and your communication backbone does all the complex non-functional work. Load balancing, traffic management, fault tolerance, end-to-end monitoring, dynamic routing and secure communication could all be […]


Workshop: Docker and Kubernetes for .NET Developers


Docker is a platform for running applications in lightweight units of compute called containers, and Kubernetes is an orchestrator for managing containers at scale. In this workshop you’ll learn all about building and running .NET Framework and .NET Core apps in Docker containers, how to make your Dockerized apps ready for production, and how to […]
