Blog: SWI-Prolog Solutions b.v.

In September this year (2020) I have started a company named SWI-Prolog Solutions b.v. Increased focus on stability and scalability of SWI-Prolog and the desire to get into closer contact with real world projects caused me to prefer a commercial context over an academic one. Covid-19, causing the physical part of the academic environment to cease functioning, made the step easier. I do remain associated with the VU (Vrije Universiteit) Amsterdam as a guest.

SWI-Prolog Solutions b.v. will continue to develop and support SWI-Prolog under the BSD-2 open source license. SWI-Prolog Solutions b.v. will establish a context that makes SWI-Prolog a more attractive choice for professional projects which may be either commercial or research projects. As a first step I'd like to establish contact with and between professional users. Possible follow ups:

  • Join resources to get things done. "Things" can be technical improvement, improved release management, improved documentation, tools, etc. "Join resources" can be financial as well as in kind.
  • SWI-Prolog Solutions involvement to help with your project. Think about architectural choices as well as indentifying and resolving bottlenecks. SWI-Prolog provides many extensions that may simplify your project a lot. Sometimes small enhancements are needed to make this work (effectively) for your project.
  • Organize dedicated training.
  • Consider a (paid) membership plan with levels that provide support, assistance and influence on prioritizing development.

Exactly how SWI-Prolog Solutions b.v is going to operate is still an open question.
