IPython is purely a console environment to run python code and functions/commands.
You can run specific python code that connects to any database (and you can do so from inside the IPython console)
IPython does not directly support Django because django is a framework that needs a lot more configuration. Although in case you set up a django project you can run the django supported environment within an Ipython shell using the django shell command
Since django is not within the scope of the tutorial mentioned in your question, I suggest you look at the django tutorials or at online forums to get a better idea.
