About the Author
Brent Stineman has been in IT for over 20 years with a career that has spanned everything from mobile to mainframe. Most of this career has been focused on internet and distributed application development with the last 4 years being highly focused on Cloud Computing and the Microsoft Azure Platform.
Brent began working with Windows Azure in early 2009 while a consultant with Sogeti USA. His efforts and passion led to his quick rise at Sogeti and eventual recognition as one of the inaugural Microsoft MVP for the Azure platform in October of 2010.
In October of 2012, Brent left Sogeti to become a Technical Evangelist for Microsoft. In his new role he’s focused on helping ISVs in the US Central region adopt Microsoft’s Azure platform. This allows him to more deeply pursue his passion for cloud and work with an even wider array of clients to solve the challenges and knock down the barriers of cloud adoption. Most recently, Brent has been doing this as part of the new Technical Evangelism and Development (TED) team within Microsoft’s corporate DPE group.
