Jeff Rush walks you through the excellent IPython (enhanced
Python shell) in 5 hands-on videos.

This is a usage walkthru showing the use of the enhanced interactive 
shell named IPython.  Topics covered include:

1) tab completion, namespace management, logging, the help system and 

2) directory navigation, system shell commands and the running of 
Python programs

3) input and output history caching, viewing and editing Python source 
and the logging of your session.

4) debugging and profiling your code, then look at executing 
long-running callables in background threads during your session.

5) session input filtering using an example of physics units for value 
representation, and support for data visualization using matplotlib.
