Super cool you are getting some press! I would love to see some articles on how you use agile techniques in python.

At my new company I need to unittest everything and this is new for me. I was doing wild west code before :)

Maybe a zsh how to for the python inclined would be sweet as well! Keep up the good work.

Well, if you just want a "Pythonic" shell, ipython can be used as a UNIX shell as well. I like zsh because it's a "tricked out" version of Bash.

Most of what I know about zsh I learned from:

http://zsh.sourceforge.net/Intro/intro_toc.html

My favorite features are:

* Recursive star: gvim **/*.py

* Really smart tab completion.

* Smart, right-side prompts: RPROMPT='(%~)'
