[IPython-user] Some new material about ipython...

I'd like to mention a couple of new things regarding ipython, which some of
you may find useful and/or interesting.
First, Ian Ozsvald has been busy making training mini-videos for a number of
Python-related tasks. These can be a very nice way to introduce a user to the
topic in a friendly way. The IPython ones are here:
They are quite introductory, so if you are a die-hard IPython user you may
already know the material, but you may still find them useful as pointers for
your newly converted-to-ipython friends :)
Also have a look at some of Ian's other material on the site, I actually
learned today about the Winpdb debugger (which is NOT win32-specific) from one
of his videos.
Second, at the SAGE 2006 workshop:
I gave a presentation about future directions for ipython (what's going on in
chainsaw) including a demo of the parallel capabilities. If you are
interested, there are mp3s of the lectures, as well as slides:
For those of you interested in symbolic computing, SAGE is a very impressive
piece of work, built on top of ipython as its interactive shell. It's really
nice to call into Mathematica's command-line environment with ipython's
readline support. And SAGE exposes a LOT of computational capabilities,
especially if number theory or algebraic geometry are your cup of tea.
