i build stuff on the internet

I'm Victor Felder and vhf are the initials I usually use on the Internet.

I'm a university trained computer scientist, although what I really enjoy is programming and my work as software engineer.

I spend time participating in the open-source software ecosystem by authoring open-source tools and software, creating open-source projects, writing technical articles, filing issues and fixing bugs in interesting projects.
