If you want to review our coding standards and -quality, we invite you to take a look at our open-source software which is available as eGenix mx Base distribution. Our commercial (non-OSS) products have been in use by many large companies around the world for years. They have also been integrated into several top-selling products, such as the Inktomi Ultraseek search engine or the IBM OmniFind Enterprise Search line of products.

Over the years we have helped quite a few companies develop Python-based solutions and products. As example, we've been working with Point Nine Financial Technologies, London, and helped them develop a very flexible, yet complete and fast time-to-market financial trading system based on Python.

Contract our most senior consultant: Marc-André Lemburg

Marc-André Lemburg, CEO eGenix.com

eGenix' CEO, Marc-André Lemburg, who has been active with and for Python since 1993/94, is now available as consultant to guide you in the design of your Python applications, help you with your Python projects, build development teams and coach them to excel at using Python.

Senior Python Software Architect

Marc-André has been Python core developer since 1997, he designed and wrote the Unicode integration for Python (PEP 100), including the codecs subsystem and the encodings package, and maintained the implementation for more than a decade.

The "mx Tools" were originally written for the eGenix Application Server, a framework suitable to implement large-scale web applications in Python. The results of the research going into this software are still working out well today and have been used successfully in several projects.

Marc-André is the editor for the two Python database standards Python DB-API 1.0 (PEP 248) and Python DB-API 2.0 (PEP 249).
