About the Author

Dona lives on the cutting edge of technology, societal movement and pictures of cats. She is an engineering manager at Microsoft, author of 4 books, fashion blogger at FibSeq.Style, an aspiring fashion designer and an advocate for diversifying talent in the tech industry. Her 13 years of software development experience has centered around building products that are used by more than a billion people, starting from Oracle databases to multiple versions of Windows and currently, holograms for Microsoft HoloLens. For reals. Her leadership for diversity in hiring and retention is having worldwide impact. She spends several months every year leading technical roadshows, hackathons, and advising universities and students in U.S., Canada, Mexico, Spain, France, U.K., Australia and Argentina. She has interviewed over 700 people, hired over 200 and mentors around 50 at any given time. She has been requested by Harvard, Stanford, MIT, Oxford, Cambridge, and many more engineering and business schools and large organizations such as Grace Hopper, WISE and Tapia to keynote and speak at various conferences and events. YOU HAD ME AT 'HELLO, WORLD' is a culmination of the stories she, her mentors and role models share with the students and new hires who approach them for career advice. Preciously, Dona was the published author of three novels HOW TO SALSA IN A SARI, SHRINK TO FIT and HAUTE DATE all from Harper Collins' Kimani Tru line. She lives in Seattle with her *really* patient husband and a very bossy grey tabby named Ash.
