Safia is an open source developer and writer with a passion for data science and machine learning for social good and STEM education. When she is not on her computer, she can be found running, exercising, drinking tea, or watching films.


When we talk about open source, we focus mostly on the code and contributions. But as a crucial element of the developer ecosystem, it’s important to think about the business side of things.

Developer and open source maintainer Safia Abdalla helps us tackle these questions to better understand how open source really works.
