[N] Python Creator Guido van Rossum Quits Dropbox, And Announced His Retirement
The creator of one of the worlds most popular programming language Python, Mr. Guido van Rossum is all set to start the second half of his life, Rossum has announced his retirement this week. Guido is stepping down from his current role at cloud file storage firm Dropbox and heading into retirement.
Guido joins Dropbox in the month of December 2012, at Dropbox he spent his last six and half years. The hiring of Guido makes sense because so much of Dropbox functionality was built on Python.
Dropbox has about four million lines of Python code and it’s the most heavily used language for its back-end services, desktop app and in other major operations. When Guido van Rossum started in 2012, Dropbox’s server and desktop client were written: “almost exclusively in Python”.
