Napier Port IT engineer, Kyle Dunkerley, has picked up a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional award.
Microsoft says the award is given to "exceptional, independent community leaders who share their passion, technical expertise, and real-world knowledge of Microsoft products with others." Those awarded are people who "actively share their... technical expertise with the different technology communities related directly or indirectly to Microsoft".
Kyle got the award after being on a video with Dona Sarkar (Head of Windows Insider Program) which he was asked to participate in after being recognised as being the Top Windows Insider in New Zealand.
This means over the course of Windows 10 development and life (from 1 October 2014) he has given over 300 separate items of feedback on everything from how Windows looks to how it works under the hood. Some of his recommendations have been put in place and helped shape the Windows 10 experience for everyone around the globe.
