While looking for good way to define a banded matrix in Python I stumbled on the following tutorial:

HPC Techreport: A brief introduction to Python

After the standard introduction to basic Python concepts, I quite like the way different HPC solutions are built up in the end (numpy, scipy, weave, Cython) to lead to one example implemented with very different approaches.

In the end, I found yet another solution for the problem I was working on, but I think I have better idea "what is out there" in terms of high-performance options.
