"BeOpen.com, the worldwide leader in Python technologies, announced today the launch of its PythonLabs Professional Services Program. The Program offers custom application development, technical support and Python technology development for dotcoms and major enterprises. Companies with present or future plans for Python or in need of rapid application development now have access to Python's foremost technologists at PythonLabs under the direction of Guido van Rossum, the creator of Python. Corporations can contract BeOpen PythonLabs on a project basis and can also sponsor development of the Python language."

"Python is setting a new standard for creating advanced Internet-centric applications and providing leading firms with improved time-to-market, reduced maintenance costs and greater leverage than Java, Perl and C++," noted Mark Kaleem, CEO of BeOpen.com. "Our PythonLabs professional services bring the business advantages of Python, today enjoyed by such firms as Yahoo! Red Hat, Ultraseek (now Inktomi), Microsoft Network eShop, Google and Loudcloud, to a broad audience on an outsourced basis."

"Python fills the need for rapid, multi-platform application development and advanced feature sets that customers are demanding today. Guido van Rossum explains, "The complexity of developing distributed server, embedded and even desktop applications continues to grow rapidly and traditional solutions are simply adding to this complexity. Python lets us focus on the business problem at hand and generate flexible, long-lasting solutions that excite users and are ready in much less time than traditional projects. This is how mission-critical systems should be built."
