Next week is the EuroPython conference from July 23-29 in Edinburgh, Scotland. Microsoft is a platinum sponsor of EuroPython this year, and are looking forward to meeting you there! Be sure to come by our booth and check out our sessions.
Visual Studio has long been recognized for the quality of its IntelliSense (code analysis and suggestions) across all languages, and has had support for Python since 2011. We are pleased to announce that we are going to be making the Python support available to other tools as the Microsoft Python Language Server.
We are pleased to announce that the June & July 2018 releases of the Python Extension for Visual Studio Code is now available from the marketplace and the gallery. Between these two releases we have closed a total of 156 issues including introducing a new experimental language server and gevent support in our experimental debugger.
Recognizing the popularity of the Django and Flask web app frameworks, we recently added several tutorials in the Python documentation that guide you through working with these frameworks in Microsoft’s Python-capable IDEs: the lightweight Visual Studio Code available on all operating systems, and the full Visual Studio for Windows. We also wanted to take the opportunity to highlight how you can contribute to docs, and the ways you can give feedback—both of which we very much welcome!
