If you’re building with Python, you’re probably using urllib3.
urllib3 is regularly in the top three downloaded Python projects, with over 250 million downloads per month. It’s critical to the Python ecosystem the same way that Log4j is to Java, and keeping the package secure, trusted, and maintained is essential.
What goes into maintaining a project as widely used as urllib3? Lead maintainer Seth Larson breaks down how—thanks in part to a partnership with Tidelift—the team is able to devote the much needed time and effort to keep the project secure and healthy. This involves establishing account security, backwards compatibility, automating and streamlining release processes, reproducible builds, and more.
Join us Wednesday, Dec. 7 at 3 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT when Tidelift VP of Product Lauren Hanford sits down to chat with Seth Larson about how the urllib3 team works to create better processes for a secure and well-maintained project millions depend on.
