"The Features and Futures of the Python Programming Language"
Would you say that a lot of the interesting work and excitement that's going on now in Python, or more of it at least than in the past, is on the application side? That is, applications of Python rather than new features of Python?van Rossum:
Yes. My own perception of that is somewhat colored by where people ask my advice, which is still, of course, about changes to Python internals or at least standard libraries. But I see an enormous amount of stuff going on where people are just developing very exciting applications. I think Zope is probably the prime example at the moment."
