The following blog post summarizes my reasoning on how to deliver solutions that provide digitalization and how to stay secure and stay the course. My reasoning is mostly influenced by the Hyppönen Law, and by the latest trends in the software development world. The most important thing about security and digitalization is that they have to be aligned. Additionally, it is a continuous process and not a one-time checklist.
NDC Oslo 2021 is over. Amazing three days with significant information overload. First of all, congrats to the organization @NDC_Conferences. Another special edition of NDC. My way to evaluate a conference is by the speakers and topics selection. All my expectations came true. Very often, I was not sure which session to visit, so many hard choices 😊
Before the conference, I planned one blog post to wrap up my NDC Oslo 2021 impressions. However, I decided to have several shorter blog posts with the information overload I got on the first day. Even though I had my selection of sessions that I planned to visit, I still made a couple of ad-hoc changes since I could not decide which session was better. Though I have to be honest, I made a couple of bad selections as well.
Yes, it’s conference time. After two years of online meetings, workshops, brainstorming & roadmap sessions, endless webinars, now it’s time for an in-person conference. Next week I’m visiting NDC Oslo 2021, one of the best conferences in Europe. NDC is famous for its wide but refined selection of speakers and topics that is attractive even for the pickiest developers. Based on the conference agenda and the speaker selection, I can detect certain trends next year. Here are my favorites.

2020 was a year of unprecedented disruption that has had a global impact. We saw that many companies underwent a digital transformation in the way of rethinking the business strategy, shifting the work to remote-first environments and implementing new communication technologies. Of course, developers were those who supported this transformation, helping organizations become more agile and resilient. Now that the first quarter is over we can say it is an exciting time to be agile as we see many of the changes already underway.
Each career path is unique and for quality assurance engineers, this is no different. When people think of those who work in IT, they probably imagine them sitting in front of their computers all day long doing the same repetitive tasks over and over. This, however, is simply not the case. Each day in the life of a QA engineer is different and being in QA means you never stop learning.
Any agile team leader can tell you that teamwork is essential to delivering great software and that agile teams rely on greater collaboration and clear communication between the team members. Owning to the frequently changing requirements in an agile project, the designers, developers, testers, and business analysts work hand-in-hand with each other.
Nebb styrker sin AVEVA Wonderware-kompetanse og henter inn erfaren ressurs fra Prevas. Ett av Norges største Wonderware-miljøer vokser videre. Samtidig etableres et nærmere samarbeid med Prevas som gir felles muligheter og nye løsninger for kundene.
“The Journey Of Your Data! From Your Sensors To Your Dashboards!” is the title of the talk I gave at the last industry-science meetup organized by the University of South-Eastern Norway (USN) and Energy Valley. The meetup aimed to create an arena where regional high-tech industry players from the energy and engineering sector can meet and interact with strategic research initiatives, interdisciplinary research, and science groups from USN. Since the goal of the meetup was to show results from applying the latest state-of-art research in solving real industry problems, we have decided to give a technology introduction to Qlarm. My talk was a high-level journey on making the most important architectural design decisions that one must make while designing a solution like Qlarm.
A few weeks ago, I had a chance to attend the DevReach software development conference, which took place on November 12-14 in Sofia, Bulgaria. This year, the conference was a 3-day event with a pre-conference workshop held on the first day and 2 days of conference sessions.
DevReach strives to be the premier developer conference in Central and Eastern Europe. With more than 800 attendees from nearly 20 countries this year DevReach marked its 10th edition. The conference is intended for IT professionals engaged or interested in application development. This event featured world-renowned industry experts who shared their knowledge in a stimulating, enjoyable and friendly atmosphere. As a conference, DevReach offers the ideal opportunity to enhance your proficiency in software application development and boost your confidence.
Focusing on sustainable industrial production, Nebb has developed an industry cluster that combines several industry processes to achieve zero emission production. Centrally here is oxyfuel energy production based on solid fuels in combination with by-products from other industries which is very valuable for achieving good profitability and sustainable development.
GDevCon brands itself "the user group of user groups" for graphical programmers. Graphical programming - "G" for short - refers to National Instruments' LabVIEW programming language, which is a graphical programming environment used by engineers and scientists to develop measurement, test, and control systems using graphical icons and wires that resemble a flowchart.
We are happy to announce that our 4 kW subsea VSD this spring has passed the qualification tests according to ISO 13628-6!
The 4 kW version has been developed mainly for small subsea pumps, but can run practically any synchronous or asynchronous motor.
The qualification testing is performed to verify that it can tolerate the conditions it may experience during transport, installation and operation subsea. The unit has been through the following qualification tests:
- Sinusoidal vibration
- Random vibration
- High temperature
- Low temperature
- Thermal cycling
The random vibration test, with 6 grms for 2 hours is by far the toughest of the qualification tests. In practice, this kind of vibration is far more than the unit will experience in normal use, but it proves the robustness of the product.
Nebb has previously qualified the 45 kW model according to the same standard. We also have a 400 kW model under development. See our subsea VSD page for more information about our variable speed drives.
One of the facts that makes Nebb software products successful is that they are designed and developed in an agile fashion. The agile approach implies regular product (re) inception sessions, where we validate our software products on the latest changes on the market and the end-user feedback.
A couple of weeks ago, I had a great opportunity to visit NDC Oslo 2017. NDC stands for Norwegian Developers Conference and is one of Europe`s largest conferences for .NET & Agile development. The first conference was held in Oslo in 2008 and today NDC Conferences are 5-day events with 2 days of pre-conference workshops and 3 days of conference sessions and are being held in Oslo, London, Sydney, and Copenhagen. What makes the NDC different is the quality and the quantity of the speakers and the topics it offers. Having this in mind I must say it is always a challenge to select the right sessions or to choose one session over several popular ones.
Since 1969, the Offshore Technology Conference is held annually in Houston, Texas. Throughout the years, it expanded both technically and globally with the Arctic Technology Conference, OTC Brazil, and OTC Asia. This year’s Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) took place from 1–4 May in Houston, in the NRG Center Rotunda Lobby.
The Nebb 45 kW subsea VSD was successfully qualified together with the pump system by Fuglesangs Subsea that receives the award ‘OTC Spotlight on New Technology 2017’ at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston, Texas at the beginning of May.
Nebb has developed subsea variable speed drives (VSD) for operation down to a depth of 3000 m. The VSD’s will operate a variety of motor types. In order to give an overview of the possibilities, similarities and differences of the different types of motors, a whitepaper has been prepared.
Having served the PMC market for decades, the two Norwegian companies gear up with the development of a new standard for the PMC industry.
