I am a principal officer and a competency manager for a team of developers at the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration. I have a masters degree in computer science and experience from several non-profit communities in Oslo. I have been involved in several large-scale projects as a full-stack developer in the Norwegian public and private sector for the past twelve years.
I have more than ten years of experience as organiser of meetups, workshops, and conferences for developers. I’m currently the lead organiser of javaBin Oslo, which is part of the Norwegian Java User Group. I’m also one of the co-organisers of Oslo Software Architecture. In September 2019, javaBin won the Duke’s Choice Award for its work as a JUG with several generations of volunteers keeping it alive and prospering. In October 2019, I was awarded the Java Champion title for my contributions to the Java community.
I have spoken at various conferences and meetups locally and internationally, such as JavaOne, JavaZone, JFokus and JDK.IO. You can find slides, code and recording of some of my talks here.
In my blog, I write about my perspectives on topics that concern the world we live in and also about computer science. I am a strong believer of justice, fairness and people helping each other to build a better world and better communities.
