The Python Pulse: A Monthly Microsoft Stream

Dawn Wages

We’re excited to announce a new monthly livestream! Each stream we start with a run down of the latest news in Microsoft Cloud, VS Code and Python tech ecosystem; then we deep dive into special segments with an esteemed guest.

A Microsoft livestream on the second Friday each month

In the first episode on 13th January 2023, brought to you by the Microsoft Developer Community team, your host Dawn Wages will chat with Pamela Fox Microsoft Cloud Advocate about Dev Containers, Codespaces and VS Code extensions available to make action and query your databases.

Each episode will consist of two parts: opening up the stream with the latest and greatest in Python at Microsoft news, then Dawn will introduce guests from across the tech ecosystem to chat cloud and Python news, share demos, answer questions and share insights.

Here’s a sneak peak of some of the exciting topics we plan to cover this quarter:

  • Advanced features in GitHub Codespaces and Dev Containers
  • Azure Developer CLI, from GitHub to Cloud with Python
  • The VS Code Python Extension Team’s Python Tools Template
  • Python and the Humanities
  • Python Cloud Developer Advocates
  • Testing with Playwright and Python: A conversation with Python Consultants and Advocates

… and much more!
