ActiveState announced today, at the Open Source World conference in San Francisco, that they will now be offering business training for the scripting languages Perl, Python and Tcl. Whether your company is new to open source or just looking to refine existing programming skills, the ActiveState Training Program will provide exactly the level and depth required for engineers to take their skills, and your company, to the next level.

Bart Copeland, ActiveState's CEO and President commented, "The ActiveState Training Program for Perl, Python and Tcl is instrumental to the completion of our end-to-end software, maintenance, support, services and training solution for businesses and Fortune 2000 enterprises. Our most successful customers are those that continuously invest in ongoing training for their developers. These organizations understand that the difference between your product launched on-time and a delayed development schedule, often lies in up-to-date, reliable programming skills."
