My name is Mustapha and I work as an Empowerment Program Specialist (Training and eLearning) at the Internet Society.
Before joining the Internet Society, I served as a contract researcher at the Alliance for Affordable Internet (A4AI), in charge of conducting the A4AI policy survey measuring the impact of regulatory policies on the sustainability and affordability of the Internet in several countries in the MENA region.
During my past experiences, I gained additional skills in eLearning, digital marketing, growth hacking, and consulting while advising growing local startups. I studied quality assurance at the Ecole Supérieure de Technologie - University Hassan II Casablanca from 2008 to 2011 and attended entrepreneurial training by Startup Maroc and Oasis 500.
I am a native Arabic speaker, and fluent in French and English.
I've been programming professionally for over 5 years in a variety of technologies and languages, including Python, Java, C++, to name a few.
Since 2014 I have been focused on Python almost exclusively, mainly in data management and analysis.
I have spent a lot of time and effort learning and gaining an in-depth understanding of Python and writing idiomatic Python, and I'd like to share that with you.
I'm definitely a Python enthusiast for many reasons, and I'd like to share that passion with you too!
