Microsoft announce official support for VSCode Python
Last week saw an interesting announcement from Microsoft MSDN blog. It announced that Don Jayamanne, creator of the Python extension for Visual Studio Code joined Microsoft. I was always impressed with the simplicity and usefulness of this extension and already wrote a blog post on that. Don definitely deserve this recognition and I am using this opportunity to congratulate him on this great achievement.
This is a great news for the Python community as well. Python was lacking a good free light weight IDE. Since Don is working full time on this now, we can expect much faster bug fixes and new feature implementations.
If you haven’t tried the Microsoft VSCode extension yet, here is the link. I wish Don all success in this new role.
