Einar Ingebrigtsen has been working professionally with software since 1994—ranging from games development on platforms such as PlayStation, Xbox, and the PC to the enterprise line of business application development since 2002. He has always focused on creating great products with great user experiences, putting the user first. Einar was a Microsoft MVP awardee from October 2008 until July 2015, which he was awarded for his work in the community and in the Silverlight space with open source projects such as Balder, a 3D engine for Silverlight. For years, Einar ran a company called Dolittle together with partners, doing consultancy work and building their own products with their own open source projects at the heart of what they did. Amongst the clients that Dolittle has had over the last couple of years include NRK (the largest TV broadcaster in Norway), Statoil (a Norwegian oil company), Komplett (the largest e-commerce company in Norway), and Holte (a leading Norwegian developer for construction software). Today, Einar works for Microsoft as a technical evangelist, focusing on Azure and advising ISVs, which meant giving up the MVP title.

A strong believer in open source, he runs a few projects in addition to Balder, the largest being Bifrost (http://bifr.st), a line of business platforms for .NET developers, and also worth mentioning is Forseti (http://github.com/dolittle/forseti), a headless auto-running JavaScript test runner.

Additionally, Einar loves talking at user groups and conferences and has been a frequent speaker at Microsoft venues, talking about different topics—the last couple of years he has mostly focused on architecture, code quality, and cloud computing.

His personal blog is at http://www.ingebrigtsen.info.

Einar has also published another book on the subject of SignalR Blueprints, by Packt Publishing.
