○ Python Software Foundation Silver
The mission of the Python Software Foundation is to promote, protect, and advance the Python programming language, and to support and facilitate the growth of a diverse and international community of Python programmers.
The majority of the PSF's work is focused on empowering and supporting people within the Python community. The PSF has active grant programs that support sprints, conferences, meetups, user groups, and Python development efforts all over the world. In addition, the PSF underwrites and runs PyCon US, the primary Python community conference.
Being part of the PSF means being part of the Python community. In 2014, we changed the bylaws to make the PSF an open membership organization, so that everyone who uses and supports Python can join. To learn more, visit https://www.python.org/psf/membership.

Afrolabs: Create the world.
We help tech startups create great products. Guiding ideas along the path to building the right thing, and to building the thing right.
The Lean Iterator process we co-created starts with ideation and exploration, helping products journey from thought, through customer/market experiments, to iteration planning. This approach is based on Customer Development and Lean Startup.
The Afrolabs Core dev & design team then builds and tests working software as the product grows and adapts based on discoveries. Our teams work their magic in a lean-agile way, based on Scrum and Extreme Programming frameworks. Our server-side technologies of choice are almost exclusively Python and Google Cloud Platform, although there are other stacks in adopted projects.
After helping a product into the world, our TeamBuilder approach helps grow the right development team with great people and culture. Coding is a super-power. To help people in Africa learn to use this superpower, LevelUp (our NPC) is a local organiser for CoderDojo, CodeCombat in the township, CodeRetreats and Lean Iterator. This helps grow talent from 7-70+.
"We are creating the world we want to live in: products, work-places, communities."
