About Sonja

I've been working on SharePoint and Office 365 intranet, website, and add-in projects since 2004. My background is in development, back-end development, front-end development, usability and branding.



2015 Office App Awards winner "Best International Developer"

Over 30 add-ins in Microsoft SharePoint App Store
I'm SharePoint MVP (Most Valuable Professional), and my blog with developer and IT Pro posts about SharePoint 2013 has well over 1,7 million hits.

I started with SharePoint with MA (Master of Arts) degree and as a .NET developer back in 2004. I have over the years made many SharePoint intranets and websites, received awards, and I have been fortunate to be part of Microsoft's RDP / TAP program twice, last time in late February 2012 with SharePoint 2013. I have been self-employed since July 2012. I continued to work for Microsoft and other companies. I also started making software - SharePoint add-ins and started speaking at conferences. I made SharePoint add-ins such as ThemeBuilder, TileMaker, QuickPoll, ConnectWithUs, ResponsivePages, SlideShow, DocumentsTreeView, TileDoc...


Events in 2015

I was speaker at the European SharePoint Conference, SP24, SharePoint Saturday in Oslo, IT / Dev Connections in Las Vegas, and Campus Days in Copenhagen. In 2015, I did sessions about SharePoint add-ins and branding Office 365. I did an online TechTalk for Microsoft Denmark, and I was a speaker at SharePoint Saturday (SPS) Belgium, SPS Paris, SPS Netherlands, SPS Cambridge, SPS Barcelona, SPS Oslo, SQL Saturday Copenhagen, European SharePoint Conference in Stockholm and SharePoint Days in Slovenia.


I got my first computer, Commodore 64, when I was 12. I had no problems what so over in beating the computer and my 6 years older brother in football. I was trying to teach him how to find an angle to shoot a ball that always worked. Well, an angle on a 2D screen. I know.
I didn't study Computer Science, because I've never considered myself beeing a geek. I studied about all the cool technology that we see today and became Master of Information Science and Multimedia in 2001.
