Hi! I’m Maria Khalusova and in this blog I write about data science topics, and general tech.

I’m a Product Manager/Developer Advocate at JetBrains where I have been working since 2006 and participated in a ton of projects including IntelliJ IDEA, TeamCity, PyCharm and Kotlin projects. My recent focus has been on Data Science/Data Engineering tooling and languages.

I’m constantly learning new things around working with data, and I love sharing my knowledge with the community. That’s why over the years I have presented at a bunch of industry events like JavaZone, PyData, PyCon Canada, AnacondaCON, DataconLA, Devoxx, ConFoo, and many more.

I’m also co-organizing PyData Montreal - a community for like-minded data folks to learn, share and network.
