[WEBINAR] Test-Driven Development with ActivePython
Test driven development (TDD) continues to grow in popularity as a development process that promotes diligence, oversight, and robust programming practices. Join Tom Radcliffe, ActiveState Director of Engineering, and Jeff Rouse, ActiveState Director of Product Management, as they discuss the emergence and importance of TDD, how it impacts Python developers, and what it means for enterprise programming.
On the Road to Unification: ActivePerl and ActivePython + Komodo IDE
We are bundling Komodo IDE with our ActivePerl and ActivePython language distributions. This is a real first step in bringing our products together: buy an ActiveState language distribution and get our first-class IDE to go with it.
The fantastic Go community and ecosystem have set a high bar for quality and we are working towards bringing solutions the community can benefit from. Our goal is to have the ActiveGo community edition have everything you need to be productive immediately after installation. Along with the standard Go toolchain, we will provide a compelling set of community tools, packages, and documentation to make Go adoption as easy as possible.

A good example is the source code for the linux kernel which at version 1.0 in 1994 consisted of 170,000 lines of code, and as of version 4.8 is now over 22M lines of code…
