Pierre Donyegro is a DevOps Architect at Microsoft.

I joined Microsoft in 2007 supporting .NET Technologies, Debugging, TFS, IIS, Application Compatibility, and Azure DevOps.

Most of my work is helping to address customer issues onsite and providing guidance.

Early on I joined the Rangers Team, contributing to the first Branching Guidance published on Codeplex and the Build Customization Guidance.

The largest audience of one of Pierre’s deliveries was in Bucharest, Romania with more than 200 people.

The highlight of the delivery was that one of the attendees came from the back of the room and kissed the screen during the presentation and in his own word told the audience “I Love Windows 7”.

Pierre has a passion for technology.

"I gain a lot of satisfaction in transforming customers' challenges to a more agile, productive outcome and I am excited to share some of my practical knowledge.

On my free time, i enjoy the beautiful Fort Lauderdale Beach or playing Tennis with my Family."
