There is a place for “U” in the Microsoft 365 Community, whether you are a newcomer or have been around the community for years.
The beautiful South African Bantu word “Ubuntu” means “I am who I am, because of who we all are”, and the Microsoft community is a true example of “Sharing is Caring”.
This group discussion will help you understand the variety of ways to collaborate and get involved in giving back to your community. Join us as we share tips on how we can unite globally and offer guidance on where to find support, resources and best practices on leveraging M365 solutions to drive positive social impact.

Harsha Vardini –
I am Harsha Vardhini, indigenous native from Tamil Nadu, presently living in Goa, India. I am working for the past 6 years in SharePoint technology and currently working as M365 Architect in TrnDigital. I love teaching and sharing to the community because of the proverb as follows, “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime”. Teaching a person, how something works helps them to solve the problem and helps them to solve the future problems on their own. These are the same people who helps me later when I get struck. That’s the beauty of a being in a community.
I love working with React JS because it is so simple if a person understands. After working with React JS for 2 and half years, jQuery is complex to me?. I am passionate about learning new things as it keeps me up to date and be prepared always.
