Sun hires Ted Leung, Frank Wierzbicki for Python/Jython representation.

by jesse in ,


This is great news for all of the parties involved - Frank Wierzbicki got hired on full-time at sun for Jython development, and Ted Leung for Python "advocacy"/dynamic language at Sun. This is great - Python/Jython gets more exposure, and Sun continues to ramp up it's dynamic language(s) work inside the JVM, which is their answer to the Microsoft's CLR and two guys get jobs doing what they love!

Sun's Burlington campus is just north of me - it's nice digs (I mainly remember the lunchroom). Maybe they'll start having python pow-wows there.

Congrats guys!
