In this chapter, you implemented your first service in the PHP language and a client script in Python. You ran the client, called the service's methods remotely, and examined the output. I hope that you experimented a little bit with your scripts.
After reading this chapter, you are now able to prepare the development environment, implement services, and make use of them through the client application.
In the next chapters, we will get into the technical details, which will allow you to fully understand Apache Thrift's potential and make use of it!
