A usage walkthru showing the use of the enhanced interactive shell named IPython. Divided into five parts, this talk in the series will cover input and output history caching, viewing and editing Python source and the logging of your session.

This series is a follow-on to the talk "5-Minutes with Python and the Interactive Shell 'IPython'" which gave an overview as a slideshow of the features of IPython.

Thanks for your effords!

These videos are very useful. I have been using Python for about 9 months on and off and find this quick overview to be very good, although I think that one needs to have used IPython for a little while before the usefulness of the tools/features described becomes apparent.

Thank you for these videos.

Thanks for the series! I have heard about iPython before, but I did not feel like digging into documentation. This video tutorial is the solution :)

very good tutorial series. Thanks a lot!

Another wonderful addition to an awesome series!

I've been IPython's basic commands, but these presentations make me realize how much more I could be doing.

Many thanks for taking the time to do this!

Review of The 'IPython' Interactive Shell - Part 3

Excellent! I'm returning to unix and python after a gap of about 4 years, and your presentation is invaluable! You present both iPython and Python extremely well. Thanks!

This series is excellent. (And I thought I already knew ipython!)

Very good, as the previous parts

Thanks, this has been very useful - I've been using iPython for a long time and had no idea of what was really under the hood.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Jeff
