…the Blog

{anonymous => 'hash'}; is the professional blog of VM Brasseur. The title is a reference to the Perl construct of an anonymous hash. It is also a play on words, as the topics covered by the blog are themselves a hash of various things which cross the author’s mind. These topics may include but certainly are not limited to:

  • Open source strategy, contributing, and compliance
  • Technical management and leadership
  • Career development & job hunting
  • Public speaking

…the Author

Selfie of me wearing a hoodieI’ve spent most of my 20 years in the tech industry leading software development departments and teams, and providing technical management and leadership consulting for small and medium businesses. Now I leverage nearly 30 years of free and open source software experience and a strong business background to advise companies about open source, technology, community, business, and the intersections between them.

I’m the proud winner of the Perl White Camel Award (2014) and the O’Reilly Open Source Award (2016). I am a moderator and author for opensource.com and a frequent and popular speaker at open source conferences and events. I frequently blog about open source, business, and technical management here at {anonymous => ‘hash’}.

Currently I live in lovely Portland, Oregon with my amazing cats, Percy and Nigel. I am not interested in relocating.

If you or your company needs assistance with open source strategy, implementation, compliance, or community management, please contact me.
