Will your book contain any discussion of iPython or the iPython notebook?

I don't have anything about iPython in the book. In general I don't say much about IDEs on the assumption that if the book is used in a class the teacher will provide an environment.

But I have mixed feeling about this because I think it makes it harder for people who are learning on their own.

What do you think?

I think the interactive nature of iPython lends itself to learning environments. It seems like it can be used as a Python discovery tool. Especially the notebook.
