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.
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!
In this post, we're going to walk through a sample project that demonstrates scripting a C++ application with Python using CPython, PyBind11 and Visual Studio 2017. We show how you can wrap a C++ class with Python and how to use cross-language debugging and type-hints to get a development experience that only Visual Studio can offer.
We are pleased to announce that the May 2018 release of the Python Extension for Visual Studio Code is now available from the marketplace and the gallery. In this release we have closed a total of 103 issues including support for the new and popular formatter Black, improvements to the experimental debugger and formatting as you type.
Microsoft was a keystone-level sponsor of PyCon US 2018 this year, which took place in Cleveland Ohio from May 9-17th. We had a great time interacting with and learning from the community, and we had a lot of fun! In this post we’ll share our experience and useful links from the conference.
