Videos of IPython being used in the wild
Of course the first thing you might try is searching for videos about IPython (1900 or so by last count on Youtube) but there are demonstrations of other applications using the power of IPython but are not mentioned is the descriptions. Below are a few such:
- Video on how to learn Python featuring IPython as the platform of choice for learning!
- This video shows IPython being used in the scikit-learn project
- He does not show IPython in use but his IPython sticker is clear for the entire video: Planning and Tending the Garden: The Future of Early Childhood Python Education
- Wes McKinney's speech on Python and data analysis features IPython as does his book Python for Data Analysis
- This video shows Plotly and IPython in use at a Montreal Python meetup.
