My name is Olve Maudal. Born 1971. I grew up in Trondheim. Studied in the UK. Now living just outside of Oslo. Married to Katrina. Two grown-up children, Eleanor and Thor.

I am a dedicated geek and very proud of being a computer programmer. I have been writing code nearly every day since I got my first real computer, the VIC-20. Programming is definitely my favourite activity, but I am also very interested in how and why large groups of developers and knowledge workers can achieve spectacular things when working together in certain ways. This has lead me into studying things like development principles, innovation, project management, community building, craftmanship, system architecture, strategy, leadership, and organization theory. Knowledge management and inhouse training has been central in all positions and roles that I have had so far in my career.

At university I studied Software Engineering and Artificial Intelligence. I started my professional career in an oil service company developing systems for searching oil, then I moved into finance developing systems for electronic funds transfer, then I worked for a networking company developing systems for effective remote communication between people, and now I am working for an energy company.

Main personal interests includes programming, mathematics, technology and science. I also enjoy x-country skiing, hiking and turorientering. I do play chess and bridge at a decent level. Oh and by the way, I can solve a Rubik’s cube blindfolded.
