In addition to being an all-around great guy, Torbjorn has been in the IBM i space for more than 20 years, he is a COMMON speaker, active in IBM community outreach and he encourages everyone to play hooky from work to attend conferences and get more education to do their jobs better. Torbjorn recently spoke at COMMON's NAViGATE conference. Checkout his talk "20 Things Other Platforms Just Dream About" on the COMMON website.

Torbjorn's pick for the week:
I have a bunch of things that I love right now. But I would probably say SUMMER! Up here (Alaska level) we are really waiting for summer from September to May/June when summer arrives. Days are as long as they are short in the middle of the night.
And of course, we celebrate this HEAVILY with our Midsummer traditions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8ZLpGOOA1Q
