[ACCEPTED]-Biggest python projects-python

Accepted answer
Score: 36

Youtube is probably the biggest user after Google 4 (and subsequently bought by them).

Reddit, a digg-like 3 website, is written in Python.

Eve, an MMO with 2 a good chunk written in Python is pretty 1 impressive as well.

Among many other Python-centered companies, beyond 20 the ones already mentioned by Unknown, I'd 19 mention big pharma firms such as Astra-Zeneca, film 18 studios such as Lucasfilm, and research 17 places such as NASA, Caltech, Lawrence Livermore 16 NRL.

Among the sponsors of Pycon Italia Tre 15 (next week in Firenze, IT -- see www.pycon.it) are 14 Qt/Trolltech (a wholly owned subsidiary 13 of Nokia), Google of course, Statpro, ActiveState, Wingware 12 -- besides, of course, several Italian companies.

Among 11 the sponsors of Pycon US in Chicago in March 10 were (of course) Google, as well as Sun 9 Microsystems, Microsoft, Slide.com, Walt 8 Disney Animation Studios, Oracle, Canonical, VMWare 7 -- these are all companies who thought it 6 worthwhile to spend money in order to have 5 visibility to experienced Pythonistas, so 4 presumably ones making significant large-scale 3 use of Python (and in most cases trying 2 to hire experienced Python developers in 1 particular).

Our project is over 30,000 lines of Python. That's 33 probably small by some standards. But it's 32 plenty big enough to fill my little brain. The 31 application is mentioned in our annual report, so 30 it's "strategic" in that sense. We're not 29 a "huge" company, so we don't really qualify.

A 28 "huge company" (Fortune 1000?) doesn't develop 27 primarily in any single language. Large 26 companies will have lots of development 25 teams, each using a different technology, depending 24 on -- well -- on nothing in particular.

When 23 you get to "epic companies" (Fortune 10) you're 22 looking at an organization that's very much 21 like a conglomerate of several huge companies 20 rolled together. Each huge company within 19 an epic company is still a huge company 18 with multiple uncoordinated IT shops doing 17 unrelated things -- there's no "develop 16 primarily in" any particular language or 15 toolset.

Even for "large companies" and "small 14 companies" (like ours) you still have fragmentation. Our 13 in-house IT is mostly Microsoft. Our other 12 product development is mostly Java. My 11 team, however, doesn't have much useful 10 specification, so we use Python. We use 9 python because of the duck typing and dynamic 8 programming features.

(I don't know what 7 a dynamic type system is -- Python types 6 are static -- when you create an object, its 5 type can never change.)

Since no huge company 4 develops primarily in any particular language 3 or toolset, the trivial answer to your question 2 is "No" for any language or tool. And No 1 for Python in particular.

Python is very powerful language, Many big 10 and the very high ranked websites are built 9 on python..

Some big products of python 8 are:-

  1. Google (extensively used)
  2. Youtube (extensively used)
  3. Disqus
  4. Eventbrite
  5. Pinterest
  6. Reddit
  7. Quora
  8. Mozilla
  9. Asana (extensively used)
  10. Dropbox (started with python, stayed with python)

Even Many companies are shifting their 7 websites from PHP to Python, Because of 6 its efficiency, fast ability, and reliability, and 5 availability of huge support and many good 4 frameworks such as Django..

Moreover, I am 3 not saying that PHP is not a good server 2 side scripting language, But truth is that, most 1 users are adapting python instead of PHP.
