Python's Web Server Gateway Interface (WSGI) not only enables a multitude of Python web frameworks to share code when it comes to deployment, but also enables entirely new levels of re-use for Python web development. This talk is focused on explaining WSGI, new types of re-use with WSGI middleware, and explore new frameworks that heavily utilize WSGI; in this case, Pylons. Moving beyond monolithic frameworks that try to do everything themselves, to new modes of development where you can use just the parts you want and still have active development communities to interact with.
