Anaconda, a data science platform provider, has purchased PythonAnywhere, a cloud-based Python development and hosting environment.

PythonAnywhere’s expertise allows Anaconda to support its community of over 30 million individuals.

“Today, non-programmers are the fastest-growing group of Python users. For Python to maintain this growth and remain the most widely used data science programming language in the world, it’s imperative to increase accessibility and remove barriers to collaboration,” said Peter Wang, CEO of Anaconda. “With the PythonAnywhere acquisition, Anaconda will extend its services to all Python developers while building on capabilities for data scientists, engineers, data science enthusiasts, and students.”
