About me

Alexander Solaat Rødland

Being an IT-professional for more than 15 years with long experience of both ICT, organizational relations and journalism to mention. With education within electronics and several branches of the ICT industry, I embrace challenges outside the much-spoken-of “comfort zone” to gain new knowledge and skills.

Please let me know how my colleagues in Amesto Fortytwo and I may be of assistance to you and your organization, either as technical expert advisors, solution providers, questionmakers, or motivational tutors in technology.

Knowing the answer is only half the equation - asking the right question is the key!

My Story

As of fall 2015 I completed a bachelor degree in information science (BASV-INFO) at the University of Bergen with focus on software development and motivational- and organization psychology. As of spring 2018, I completed bachelor in work- and organizational psychology (BAPS-AOP) at the same university.

I have been awarded with the MVP since 2014 and Windows Insider MVP since 2018. I have been a frequent speaker at various local seminars such as TechDays in Sweden. Nordic Infrastructure Conference (NIC) in Norway and globalt conferences like Microsoft Ignite.

Challenging the everlasting exponential curve of the technological development, I also lecture and perform key-note speeches at seminars and conferences.
