Python with Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code – tips and tricks for a more productive developer l

Steve Dower


Developers have many choices when it comes to writing Python code from editors to IDEs, from free tools to paid, from tools designed specifically for their platform to tools running on many, from open source to closed source tools and so on… In this demo-driven session, we’ll show you why we think the cross-platform, free, and open source Visual Studio Code will become your favorite tool for all your Python needs. From editing to linting, to debugging and more, you will learn how to get started, as well as tips and tricks to save you time in your everyday development lifecycle. You will also learn when to consider Visual Studio 2017, which for certain scenarios (such as mixed C and Python development), can offer you more than any other Python tool on the planet.
