In this episode of Good Code Podcast, we talk to Cheuk Ting Ho about her experience in coming from academia to working in an open-source company and building a community of contributors, code review practices in the TerminusDB project, and the importance of communication while building a healthy open-source community.
Cheuk spent 5 years researching theoretical physics at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, before moving to build a career in data science. She’s worked with a bunch of startups before joining TerminusDB, where she’s working on building a revolutionary graph database. She’s contributed to a number of open-source projects, such as Pandas, Keras, scikit-learn. She also maintains a bunch of popular open-source libraries of her own and has been on the organizing team of many meetup groups and conferences, like EuroPython.
