We are excited to have Microsoft as our Keystone Sponsor for EuroPython 2020. Microsoft has been a regular sponsor of EuroPython and is a great supporter of Python in general. Thanks, Microsoft !
You will be able to visit their sponsor exhibit rooms and take the opportunity to chat with their staff to learn more about the Python eco-system they have created.
Please find below a hosted blog post from Microsoft.
EuroPython 2020 Team
Microsoft’s Python team loves EuroPython, including this year’s online version!
EuroPython is something we look forward
to every single year. The Python community is vibrant, diverse, and
inclusive, and we love that we can help make EuroPython happen and
bring the community together, in a unique, online, way this year.
Python is widely used at many different
teams at Microsoft, e.g. the Office team writes Machine Learning
services in Python, the Bing team analyzes logs with Python, the
Azure team generates documentation with Python, and our device teams
build firmware with Python. Moreover, millions of our customers rely
on our tools and platforms for their Python codebases. We are
invested in Python for the long term, and we want to help the Python
community grow as more people learn that they too can build their own
To help achieve that goal, we have built out great support for Python in Visual Studio Code and Python in Azure:
- In Visual Studio Code, the popular, free, cross-platform editor with support for Python, we’ve added the ability to natively edit Jupyter notebooks allowing you to work with Python code and interactive notebooks in the same workspace.
- Now you can deploy Python web apps for free to Azure App Service on Linux using simple CLI commands, via the Python Linux plan on Azure App Service.
- You can also build serverless Python applications and APIs in Azure Functions with a rich developer experience in VS Code, starting at zero-scale with the first million calls free.
- If you’re looking to build intelligent apps, or to manage machine learning workflows, Azure Cognitive services and Azure Machine Learning service are both easily accessible from Python.
We are truly missing the opportunity to
meet with Python developers in person this year, and we are putting
all our energy into connecting virtually.
Our team will be available to chat with
Discord throughout the EuroPython 2020 online event. See you
