More about Sonja Madsen in her own words:
I'm SharePoint MVP (Most Valuable Professional), and my blog on SharePoint 2013 has well over 1 million hits. I own Sonjasapps with over 20 apps in Microsoft SharePoint App Store. I'm both Microsoft Partner and Microsoft vendor. I started with SharePoint with MA (Master of Arts) degree and as a .NET developer back in 2004. I worked for Creuna, Proactive, DIS Play, Avanade and Microsoft. I have over the years made many SharePoint intranets and websites, 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 apps and started speaking at conferences. I made SharePoint apps such as ThemeBuilder, TileMaker, QuickPoll, ResponsivePages, SlideShow, DocumentsTreeView, TileDoc... I was speaker at the European SharePoint Conference, SP24, SharePoint Saturday in Oslo, IT / Dev Connections in Las Vegas, and Campus Days in Copenhagen. I also made videos about Office 365 Microsoft Virtual Academy, I was an "Intranet expert" at "SharePoint Intranet Day" with Intra2, and I held several lectures on "What's new in SharePoint 2013" with IntraTeam
