I have another question because I find Norway fascinating and beautiful and I would like to escape the US someday.
Can an American programmer ever fit into a Norwegian work environment? What should and shouldn't an American do in order to assimilate well?
Bonus question: is there a stigma surrounding female programmers? In the US I am one of only a few female programmers that I know, it would be nice if there was more of a balance in Norway.

I've got a friend from Tenesee that moved here last year and is currently working as a React Dev. He's had some adjustment issues (like aknowledging that he can take sick days without feeling guilty) but is otherwise thriving. As far as I know, the biggest hurdle to overcome as an American in Norway is the inherent cold front we put up socially. Making those first few friends can be a bit hard, but after that it gets easier.
As for the stigma. There has been a lot of work put into making the programmer landscape as equal as possible, but unfortunately you'll also find a lot of the same challenges women face on the regular. It's better normal web/backend dev tho, as the field is more developed and has better HR and union rules to help ensure a fair playing field. (Get signed up with an union as soon as you get here!)
If you have any other questions I'll do my best to answer them.
