NetApp

All about me and NetApp
Posted by stylesen

In work I wanted python2.7 for using some latest modules. I run Debian 6.0 ie., squeeze in my laptop, but python2.7 is available in Wheezy or Debian testing. In order to install python2.7 from the testing repository add the following in your sources.list file ie., /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://mirror.cse.iitk.ac.in/debian/ testing main contrib

After adding the testing repository, do an update and then install python2.7 package as follows:

$ sudo aptitude update

$ sudo aptitude install python2.7

I joined NetApp, Bangalore on 2nd of May 2011 ie., yesterday. My work here in NetApp involves programming in Python language, which I was dreaming a long time, to get a career which allows me to completely program in Python and it is fulfilled now. I ve joined NetApp as a Python Developer in the tools development team. NetApp is the next best employer after Google this year, listed by fortune magazine - http://money.cnn.com/magazines/fortune/bestcompanies/2011/snapshots/5.html and it has been listed in this space for many years in the past too! I look forward  for all the fun ;)
