ActiveState has been the proud founding sponsor of the Python Software Foundation since its founding in 2001.

Millions of developers around the globe use Python's flexibility to build powerful web applications, applications for testing, build control and management, and more. Since Python is an open source programming language, you immediately reduce up-front project costs by leveraging Python in your development. But when using Python to build business applications, developers and managers should consider the risks. Like most open source projects, Python isn't quality assured or commercially supported, so it may not be safe for business or enterprise-ready for mission-critical applications. Don't let Python fail your systems and cost your business downtime or revenue.
