Vegard vygy Aasen


From Norway. Born in beautiful (but rather rainy) Odda, Hordaland. Currently living in Ringerike, Buskerud.


Masters degree in Computer Science, acquired 2009 from University of Oslo. Focused 80% on OOP.

Bachelors degree in Computer Science, acquired 2007 from University College of Buskerud.

Work status

Working as a System Developer with many of the security solutions at Telenor Norge ASA. The current focus is Mine Sider, internal architecture with SAML and Min Bedrift. Working mostly with J2ee, Spring, jax-rs/-ws, saml and similar technologies.


Personally I see myself as a big car enthusiast, but at the moment I'm driving a Toyota Yaris. In other words, many might put a questionmark behind that expression. I'm also a big fan of skiing, mb cycling, gaming and coding. In my not-working-hours I'm mostly either coding some stuff, or training - or relaxing (I know much about that topic). Heh!
