Join our meetup to learn from open-source experts, and how to restore your Game Boy cartridges!
Open source is a really great thing, and we depend on it. Through the years, Schibsted has released several open source projects that are used by people and companies around the world, but we would like to do more – we want to give more back! So, we’ve spent time with many colleagues to make a strategy for how we all can contribute more to open source in Schibsted. Now, that’s done – and we’d love to share this with you!
When? February 2, 5:00 – 7:30 PM CET
Where? At the Schibsted office, Akersgata 55, Oslo

Meet the speakers
Zuzanna Zygadlo-Stenberg – Technology Strategy Lead at Schibsted, has a background in both software engineering and strategic management and loves working with skilled people. Motivation is harvested from learning something new every single day, not only at work but also during her free time and she now holds a fresh boat licence in her pocket! Did anyone say that winter is coming? Great! Zuzanna loves mountains and winter sports so much that she easily skips the playa and heads off to colder destinations all year around ⛷
Johannes Gorset – Director of Engineering at VG – has been part of the Schibsted family for 6 years now! What might come as a surprise to us all, is that Johannes doesn’t have a background within technology nor management – but as a very curious person he started his journey with folk music🎻 He appreciates his work as meaningful in the sense of doing something important for the world, and values all the great people he gets to work with on that! When Johannes is not busy digging into open source, you’ll find him operating excavators in his free time.
Hyacinthe Malaspina – Data Engineer at Schibsted. He has been part of the Data Foundations team for 3 years. With a big passion for electronics and tinkering in general, Hyancinthe is excited to share how you can restore Gameboy cartridges. Yes, he was an embedded software engineer in another life! 🚀
Noah Hall – Noah is the lead engineer of Aftenposten, where he works on ensuring the team can do their very best to deliver Norway’s largest digital subscription newspaper. In his free time, he loves to contribute to open source – with his own programming language, Derw. He’s also a big fan of board games (no, not Monopoly) and drawing.
