Conference Presentations


VM Brasseur presents A Crash Course in Tech Management at Open Source Bridge 2012
I try to speak at (primarily Open Source) conferences as frequently as possible. Below are slides, notes and (where available) recordings of my past presentations.

Talks currently in the repertoire

I sometimes get asked to talk at the last minute. There’s no time to write something new (it takes me a looong time to write a talk), so folks have to select from something on hand. Here are the titles I currently have ready to present with a day’s notice or so:

  • A 10 Step Program for Great Tech Talks (workshop; cannot be shortened)
  • A Crash Course in Tech Management
  • A Remote Chance of Success
  • Business of Community
  • Care and Feeding of a Healthy Job Hunt (workshop; cannot be shortened)
  • Cutting Some Slack: Decoding IRC
  • Failure: Why It Happens & How to Benefit from It
  • Have It Your Way: Maximizing Drive-Thru Contributions
  • Industry of Cool
  • Passing the Baton: Succession planning for FOSS leadership
  • This is What Winning Looks Like
