Python for Decision Makers and Business Leaders Transcripts
Chapter: Course conclusion
Lecture: Open source
0:00 Remember the quote from that Red Hat survey
0:03 Enterprises are choosing open source
0:05 not because it's cheaper
0:07 although sometimes it is
0:08 but because it's genuinely better software.
0:11 And that is largely true
0:13 and of course Python is open sourced
0:15 which gives it some many of these benefits.
0:18 We saw that you go over to github, github.com/python/cpython
0:22 and you can fork or just download python
0:25 and guess what, you have full control over it.
0:27 The license gives you permission to do that.
0:29 But remember it's not just Python it's the ecosystem.
0:33 We saw those 206,000 packages on pypi.org.
0:36 Almost every single one of those is open source.
0:40 In fact, I can't think of one that is not
0:42 although out of that many there probably are.
0:44 Obviously, I haven't looked and read the details
0:46 about every single one.
0:47 It's not just Python, the main thing is open source
0:50 but the bigger huge version of Python
0:53 the level three of Python
0:54 when you think about it that itself is also open source
0:57 so, open source across the board.
