My name is Oddbjørn Steen.
I am the developer of Lifting Database, and consider myself a powerlifting enthusiast.
I am currently working full time as a software developer, and have been doing so since 2007.
I have been involved in the Norwegian powerlifting community since 2002, first as an active lifter
and then supporting the Norwegian Powerlifting Federation in different ways.
I have developed and maintained their online results system since 2005,
and I have also been a board member in the federation for 4 years.
Additionally I have developed a powerlifting competition information software called Powerlifting Live which
has been used on all national championships in Norway since 2007, and on many meets in Denmark since 2014.
The experiences from the Norwegian powerlifting community have been brought into Lifting Database
to make a flexible system which I hope other national federations and their members can benefit from.
