Python Epiphanies video series exercises

Where are the exercises for Python Epiphanies video series? The videos reference exercises we can complete but I cannot find the actual example problems anywhere. When viewing the series on your site the table of contents says "Included here are exercises for the section on Objects." but there's nothing in that section but the text above and the video that explains the solutions to the exercises.

    Hi Chris,
    Thanks, that helps. I was able to find the iPy notebook file in that git repo and figure the rest out on my own. I think it would be useful to explain what a person needs to do to find, open, and run the exercises somewhere on the video page or in the series notes.

    If anyone else has this same question/issue, here's what I did.
    1) Clone the git repo to your computer https://github.com/oreillymedia/pytho...

    2) Install the iPy interactive python notebook (so you can open the .ipynb file in the git repo)

    I found this install doc helpful http://jupyter.readthedocs.org/en/lat...

    It says, "Anaconda includes and conveniently installs Python, the Jupyter Notebook, and other commonly used packages for scientific computing and data science." I did not have Python installed at all on my computer so I used the Anaconda installer as they recommend. You can find it here https://www.continuum.io/downloads

    It installs python (I installed Python 3.4) and the iPy interactive notebook, and other things which I gather will be useful at some point in the future.

    If you have python installed already you really just need this http://ipython.org/

    3) Once the iPy notebook is installed, run the app. It launches a process that should open a new browser window and point it at a local webserver running on port 8888. From the browser, in the iPy UI you should be able to open the Python-Epiphanies-All.ipynb file in the iPy notebook app. It is a large file so it may take a second to load up. From here you should be able to edit and run the exercises.
