Dona Sarkar

Microsoft is in Queensland, Australia and so is the chief mischief maker of the Windows Insider Program, Dona Sarkar. For bright minds, Microsoft Ignite Australia gives you four days of hands-on learning, industry insights, and direct access to product experts—all in one place.

The year’s event is ending tomorrow and the closing keynote is handled by none other than Dona herself. As a Leader of the Windows Insiders Program at Microsoft, and recently led developer engagement programme for Microsoft HoloLens, Dona is a Windows veteran as she has built and led the development of some of the Microsoft’s most defining products that you use every day, every single second on your PC.

“I want people in the Insiders program to feel like a part of our family” — Dona Sarkar

Some of them include: Windows search box, File Explorer, Files and Settings display and Open/Save dialogs to name a few. Imagine using Windows without them?

Dona is one of the most influential minds at Microsoft today and she believes her personal calling in life is to help you, the next generation, prepare for the technical revolution that’s about to disrupt everything–again. Not a session to be missed!
