Happy 30th Birthday, Python!

Happy 30th Birthday, Python!

The Python programming language, created by Guido van Rossum, turned 30 years old on Feb. 20. According to Six Feet Up’s co-founders – Gabrielle Hendryx-Parker, CEO, and Calvin Hendryx-Parker, CTO and AWS Community Hero – the company was born in 1999 and executed its first major project using the open-source, easy-to-use language. 

“Python is more than a language, it’s a community that Six Feet Up is proud to be part of,” said Calvin. “Why does it work? Python stays out of my way, I have to type less, and it allows our team to build programs that our clients need.”

Today, Six Feet Up’s team of expert developers use Python to implement custom, cutting-edge solutions for a diverse array of clients, including those in the education, life sciences, transportation, fintech and government sectors. Explore Six Feet Up’s Python case studies.

Six Feet Up’s passion for Python doesn't stop at the end of the workday. In 2007, the company founded IndyPy, a Meetup group for the Indianapolis-area Python community to network and discuss the language. The group has grown to over 2,500 members and now serves the Python community at large by live-streaming the Meetups for members around the globe.

The Python programming language and the Python community continue to impact Six Feet Up. What does the Python language mean to you? Share your thoughts with the Python Software Foundation via Twitter.
