Summary

In this chapter, we covered a lot about how Python works to execute scripts and commands, and about development environments used to craft scripts. In particular, we discussed how a Python script is read and executed by the Python Interpreter, where the Python Interpreter is located within the Python folder structure, and what the different Python script extensions mean (.py, .pyc,.pyw). We also covered Integrated Development Environments and how they compare and contrast.

In the next chapter, we will cover how to use ModelBuilder to convert a modeled analysis into a Python script, and how to make it more powerful than the exported version.
