The code for the Python is kinda long but the HTML for the template was short. The book does a good job of explaining both the code and the HTML.

The reader will want to test the project on a breadboarded LED before connecting the Pi to the PowerSwitch Tail.

This project basically gives a practical method of integrating the Raspberry Pi with and electronic project and a web browser. I can see how these principle can be applied to other electronics or even robotics.
