24.8. So What's "Python: The Sequel"?

As we've seen in this book, Python is a multifaceted tool, useful in a wide variety of domains. What can we say about Python to sum up here? In terms of some of its best attributes, the Python language is:

  • General purpose

  • Object-oriented

  • Interpreted

  • Very high level

  • Openly designed

  • Widely portable

  • Freely available

  • Refreshingly coherent

Python is useful for both standalone development and extension work, and it is optimized to boost developer productivity on many fronts. But the real meaning of Python is really up to you, the reader. Since Python is a general-purpose tool, what it "is" depends on how you choose to use it.
