sent us the following email
about how both NTX and the whole of the web application development
community have benefited from the eXtropia site:
"Since 1996, I've found that the eXtropia applications were the first
available and most "reliable" on the Internet. As Sales Director for the
NTX program, I have recommended
that all web
developers in our program become familiar with the eXtropia site (NTX has
been one of the countries largest web developers networking and hosting
reseller programs since 1996).
The eXtropia site is the easiest way for a budding web developer to learn
their trade. The shopping cart script for example has been the mainstay of
the web developer world, for which most shopping carts were evolved from.
The shopping cart script has been and will continue to be in my
experience, the first available script on the Internet that successful web
developers learn and personally profit from.
eXtropia has been and will likely continue to be the largest
contributor to the Internet web development community on this Planet.
Without the eXtropia site, I strongly believe that the philosophies we
cherish today as developers on the Internet would be vastly different
had the site not existed. Open code licensing and focus on
well commented code are one of the two major contributions to the
Internet I associate as deriving from the eXtropia site."
