Python: Building an Open Source Project and Community

In 1991, Guido van Rossum made his creation, the Python programming language, open source. Today, Python is one of the three "P-languages" which enjoy massive popularity among developers as part of the open source LAMP platform (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP/Perl/Python). In this retrospective, Guido looks back on the early days of the Python community, describes its development into maturity, and explains why he is still having a good time after 13 years of herding cats.
