Canadian-owned and operated web hosting and cloud services provider, HostPapa, has announced their partnership with the Python Software Foundation. This foundation promotes, protects and advances the Python programming language by facilitating the growth of their international Phython community.
The Python Software Foundation was formed in 2001 as a non-profit organization to support, protect and develop the Python programming language, keeping it open source and available to all. Partnerships like the one with HostPapa would allow Python Software Foundation to continue on their mission, and ensure the continued development of their software in the open source space.
“HostPapa believes that open-source software development plays a critical role in the development of apps and platforms today,” said Jamie Opalchuk, founder and CEO of HostPapa. “So that’s why we are so excited about partnering with Python – to be able to support the development and promotion of their programming language, and help to expose Python to as many potential users as possible.”
The majority of the PSF’s work is focused on empowering and supporting people within the Python community. The PSF has active grant programs that support sprints, conferences, meet ups, user groups, and Python development efforts all over the world. In addition, the PSF underwrites and runs PyCon US, the primary Python community conference.
HostPapa, based in Burlington, Ontario, is a web hosting and cloud-based service provider to small businesses across the globe. HostPapa‘s commitment is to provide a complete array of enterprise-grade solutions to every small business owner.
