"SF Interactive, Inc, a leading Interactive marketing services firm, today announced it will release its TagTemplate website building software to the worldwide open source community. This software tool lets programmers build and maintain websites in a modular fashion, separating 'front-end' text and design updates from back-end scripting and database programming. Though SF Interactive currently licenses custom-developed software for services such as media tracking and optimization, TagTemplate is being released for free in the tradition of web development as a collaborative enterprise."

"SF Interactive has been building websites for four years, and some of our staff have been at it for more than twice as long," said James Waldrop, Chief Technical Officer at SF Interactive. "For all we have gotten out of the many Perl, Apache, Linux, and GNU tools out there, it is time for us to make our contribution. We hope other web developers find TagTemplate useful and join us in continuing to evolve it."

"Principally developed by SF Interactive Lead Unix Engineer Jacob Davies, the TagTemplate software allows website builders to do two things: separate form from function, and retain the full power and flexibility of the Perl programming language. Separating form (the HTML code) from function (the Perl code) allows programmers to concentrate on backend functionality while designers concentrate on the look and feel. Enabling technologists and marketers to do great work together has been a winning formula for SF Interactive and its clients since 1997."
