HostPapa partners with Python to support and promote the Python programming language

BURLINGTON, ON, August 31, 2017

Canadian-owned and operated web hosting and cloud service provider HostPapa, Inc., is excited to announce their partnership with the Python Software Foundation. The Python Software Foundation promotes, protects and advances the Python programming language by facilitating the growth of their international Phython community.

“HostPapa believes that open-source software development plays a critical role in the development of apps and platforms today,” says Jamie Opalchuk, HostPapa’s Founder and CEO. “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 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. Supported by a global network of programmers, developers and sponsors, the Python Foundation recognizes that their "generous support...furthers the PSF’s mission to promote, protect, and advance the Python programming language." Partnerships like the one with HostPapa allow Python to continue on their mission, and ensure the continued development of their software in the open source space.
