A really nice quick start up that helped me tackle the python configuration. Thanks.

Thanks so much for the tutorial.


Thank you. Good Job!!! Very useful.


maby windows isn't so bad after all


Thanks for setting this up. I just installed ipython for Windows and now need to get it running, so I will probably return to your videos later.


Very nice! Thank you for this series!

I did not expect that there is a video tutorial of scientific python. Your tutorial helps me a lot. Thank you so much for saving my time to learn python.

Very helpful to an old programmer just getting started with Python. Now if I can get the editor function to work as advertised...

good work

Thanks for the useful video! I've got a problem with IPython not using my favorite editor, but I'll try to solve that myself.

Thanks for your tutorial. As you say so much great advice for linux users and not much for windows users.

In my company we have to use Windows so this is useful.


Loved it! A very nice screencast. The visuals were very pro and the pacing fine. As for the subject matter I would say this sort of advice is pure gold to a windows-based Pythonista (and the config-file details are pretty much cross-platform). Many programmers are quite unaware (I was) of just how powerful IPython is and configuring it properly is a must. I use the pylab flag as lot - still amazed how easy the integration is. And being able to preimport modules is very nice too. Thanks for that and welcome to Showmedo - you're good to self-publish any others. And I'd love for there to be more.

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 unpingco
