Summary


We studied the use of a low-level resource to establish communication among processes with no relation between them. Further, we have taken a look at using the PP module, which helps us abstract the communication among the local processes, including distributed processes. PP is a convenient tool for building simple, small, parallel, and distributed Python applications.

In the next chapter, we will learn how to use a module called Celery for the execution of tasks in a parallel and distributed way.
