This month Pradeep Gowda will be talking about iPython, the Python REPL now with turboboost.
The Python REPL is a familiar place. For such a frequently visited place, it is kind of meh. iPython is an upgrade over the default REPL in every aspect. The iPython CLI is an immediate upgrade. But, it is the web based interface that really ups the ante on what a interactive session should be able achieve.
The iPython “notebook” mode is so popular that even other languages (F#, Julia, Haskell) etc., have compatibility modes. The notebook format is especially popular among people doing data analysis using python tools like numpy and matplotlib.
We will see a hands on session on how to upgrade the python programming experience using iPython in it’s both CLI and web forms.
Hope to see you for beers and Python!
We may have some more Python books to give out from our sponsors O'Reilly and Pearson.
