Who is Jeff Knupp?
- Jeff Knupp
I'm a professional programmer, paid speaker, author, and private tutor. I've spoken at
numerous conferences and meetups about all things Python. I'm also the author of the book
Writing Idiomatic Python, available for sale
digitally through my website and soon to be published by No Starch Press. I'm also the author of this blog,
which receives over 100,000 views per month. I have two daughters, Alex and Olivia, who are now both old enough to see and read this web page

I’m having trouble with X, which you posted about. Can you help?
I’d be happy to try. I would be nowhere without the mentoring and support of fellow
programmers/open source software projects. I’m always looking for a
chance to give back.
How do you host your various sites?
I’ve been using Linode (note, my affiliate code is in there) for about a year and couldn’t be happier. I’m running all of my applications (including this blog) on a single Linode: Ubuntu 11.10 w/ 512MB RAM and a 200GB transfer cap (the basic plan). Their documentation is great, if you need it, and I’ve honestly never had a support ticket answered as fast as by ‘cciufo’ (I just looked it up) on their support team. The problem was literally fixed in 3 minutes, at 1:06 AM no less. If I sound like a shill, it’s just because I’ve had nothing but good interactions with them. Here’s a link without my affiliate code.
Update! I've switched my primary host to Digital Ocean (afiliate link) and really like what they've done. I still host a number of applications on Linode, including the software that powers my book sales. Both Digital Ocean (No affiliate link) and Linode have been fantastic.
