ActiveState Platform: Simplify Python Project Kickoff

With the crazy pace of your development sprints, the schedule has hardly factored for getting your new dev environment setup.  In this short video, learn how the ActiveState Platform automatically resolves Python dependencies and gets your build up and running in minutes.  The ActiveState Platform enables organizations to:

  • Automate the building of open source runtime environments so developers can spend less time on configuration, and more time on programming
  • Automatically install your runtime with a single command on everybody’s machine in a standard, reproducible way

You can automatically build your own custom Python runtime with just the packages you’ll need  by creating a free ActiveState Platform account.


It’s project kickoff time again, and you’re finally getting a chance to start something new in Python – cool! 

But with the crazy pace of your development sprints, the schedule has hardly factored for getting your new dev environment setup.

You need to build it with the right version of Python and packages for your project. You’ve followed the Readme but the instructions aren’t clear. Even your team lead can’t figure it out, so maybe online forums can help. But none of these answers are working! 

And now you’ve eaten up most of your day and you haven’t even written a line of code. 

Project kickoff? More like project kick-me.

That’s why you need the ActiveState Platform.

The ActiveState Platform automatically builds runtime environments – just choose your language, platform and packages and it resolves all dependencies for you, so you get your build painlessly in minutes. It’s like having your own build engineering team on-demand.

Best of all, you can automatically install your runtime with a single command on everybody’s machine in a standard, reproducible way. Finally, an end to “it works on my machine” issues.

The ActiveState Platform takes care of all the totally annoying activity associated with managing your runtimes, so you can just focus on coding.
