Zen of python

The Zen of python is a short poem that is embedded in the interpreter summarizing the design philosophy. Type "import this" and press enter in a python interpretor

The Zen of Python, by Tim Peters
Beautiful is better than ugly.
Explicit is better than implicit.
Simple is better than complex.
Complex is better than complicated.
Flat is better than nested.
Sparse is better than dense.
Readability counts.
Special cases aren't special enough to break the
Although practicality beats purity.
Errors should never pass silently.
Unless explicitly silenced.
In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.
There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.
Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're Dutch.
Now is better than never.
Although never is often better than *right* now.
If the implementation is hard to explain, it's a bad idea.
If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea.
Namespaces are one honking great idea -- let's do more of those! "

How it simplifies development process

Two examples both in python to scrape information about a particular page in wikipedia

Both examples are in python 3

import requests
from bs4 import Beautiful Soup
url = "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Python"
response = requests.get(url)
soup = BeautifulSoup(response, "lxml")
for i in soup.find_all("p"):
print i.text()
import wikipedia
print(wikipedia.summary("History of python"))

Now it should be clear how python with its features and awesome libraries simplifies development process. Note that internally both the implementations perform the exact same set of actions but one is much more simpler than the other.
