That s the End of the Book, Now Here s the Meaning of Life

Well, the meaning of Python, anyway. In the introduction to this book I promised that wed return to the issue of Pythons roles after seeing how it is used in practice. So in closing, here are some completely subjective comments on the broader implications of the language.

As I mentioned in the first chapter, Pythons focus is on productivity and integration. I hope that this book has demonstrated some of the benefits of that focus in action. In this conclusion, lets now go back to the forest -- to revisit Pythons roles in more concrete terms. In particular, Pythons role as a prototyping tool can profoundly affect the development cycle.
