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

I’m a Senior Developer Advocate at Iterative.ai where I work on bringing the best practices from traditional software development such as version control and CI/CD to ML world. Previously I have worked at JetBrains where I participated in many projects including IntelliJ IDEA, TeamCity, PyCharm and Kotlin.

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.
