Factory Pattern in Python

I recently used the factory Pattern in Python.

It was a little surprising to me comparing typical usage of this pattern in C# v/s Python.

In particular, in C# you’s typically have an Interface defining the methods and then provide an implementation of these methods in the concrete classes.

In Python, there is no interface – In the example above I embed a static ┬ámethod in the base ┬áto select the appropriate derived class.
