In this chapter, you've learned from a real-life example how to plan a development project. We've outlined the typical stages of development:
Analyzing the requirements.
Choosing an appropriate technology.
Defining interfaces and APIs.
You've followed us through the whole development phase, and we've drawn conclusions from our example that are applicable in most software projects. With this background, you're ready for the next part of this book, and we'll introduce you to some important concepts of Web applications in the next chapter.
