Nithya Ruff

Senior Director, Open Source Practice, Comcast

At-Large Director, Board of Directors, Linux Foundation

Nithya Ruff has been a mover and shaker in FOSS for most of her career and is currently pioneering Open Source Practice at Comcast. This will be her second effort at leading the move toward Open in a major corporation, having completed a similar effort at SanDisk before moving to Comcast. She’s been an active board member of the Linux foundation for four years and a long-time champion of diversity in tech, most recently having become the Chairperson Diversity and Inclusion for CodeChix.

We’re looking forward to hearing how she’s helping to bring FOSS to Comcast.
