Microsoft's enthusiasm for Python is actually a matter of course. Microsoft Python engineer Steve Dower has written about how Microsoft embraces Python step by step. Steve Dower was an intern who participated in the development of Python Tools for Visual Studio and later became a full-time developer of Microsoft. Since entering the company in 2011, he has witnessed a change in the status of Python at Microsoft.

Steve takes Visual Studio as an example. He introduced that in 2010, Microsoft's Python developers were extremely rare and had no say. But today, Microsoft is actively investing in the Python language and community. At present, Microsoft has many products that support Python. Some new products only support Python, and some key tools are also written in Python.

In addition, Steve talked about the collaboration between teams due to Python, and they organized the “Python Day” anniversary, the company has more than 1,000 people, about 1% of the company, Steve felt The transformation of the company's internal culture.


Finally, Steve said that Python is no longer understated at Microsoft, they are proud of Python, and have hired five core CPython developers and many other contributors to actively support open source data science through NumFOCUS and PyData, and regularly sponsor, host and Participate in Python events around the world.

Just earlier this year, the official Python 3.7 app was on the Microsoft Store, the first mainstream development language to be found in the Microsoft store, which was categorized.Developer Tools > Development KitUnder the classification. According to the description in the Microsoft store, the Microsoft Store version of Python 3.7 is the Python Software Foundation.


Python is becoming more and more popular, and there is no doubt that looking at the TIOBE programming language rankings we have recently tracked, the focus of the list for several months has been on Python:

Ranked in May:R falls out of the top twenty, Python bites C++

June ranking: Python is a little inflated, even want to fight with Java

July ranking: Perl is a victim of over-hyped Python?

Now, Microsoft officially produced a Python tutorial. It seems that this fire is going to be a little stronger. What do you think?
