Microsoft at EuroPython 2023



We’re thrilled to be a Platinum Sponsor of EuroPython once more this yr, taking place from July Seventeenth-Twenty third in Prague, Czechia. In case you can’t make it in particular person, you may nonetheless attend the convention remotely, as EuroPython is a hybrid occasion this yr!

Our workforce member: Steve Dower, shall be giving talks through the convention:

Be sure you don’t miss them!  We’ll even be on the Microsoft sales space speaking in regards to the laborious work our groups have been doing to proceed supporting the Python neighborhood, and to enhance the expertise for Python builders throughout our merchandise over the previous yr.

For example, Visible Studio Code, which has develop into the most used editor for Python builders in 2021, has a brand new and improved expertise when working with Jupyter notebooks, a revamped take a look at explorer through the Python extension, and now comes with new Python dev instruments extensions (equivalent to pylint, black and isort). Now we have additionally enabled a clean and light-weight enhancing expertise on the net with and, and a feature-rich one in GitHub Codespaces.

Now we have additionally improved Knowledge Science workflows inside Visible Studio Code. Polyglot notebooks now helps Python, permitting you to make use of a number of programming languages natively all in the identical pocket book in Visible Studio Code! No extra needing wrapper libraries or magic instructions to work together with your favourite languages in the identical pocket book! With polyglot notebooks, every language in Polyglot Notebooks will get a first-class enhancing expertise with language server help equivalent to autocompletion, syntax highlighting, and signature assist. Variable explorer now means that you can verify values and share variables throughout all of the supported languages.

Moreover, we’ve got launched the Knowledge Wrangler extension in Visible Studio Code. With Knowledge Wrangler, you may seamlessly clear and discover your knowledge in VS Code. It gives quite a lot of options that may assist you to rapidly determine and repair errors, inconsistencies, and lacking knowledge. You possibly can carry out knowledge profiling and knowledge high quality checks, visualize knowledge distributions, and simply remodel knowledge into the format you want. Plus, Knowledge Wrangler comes with a library of built-in transformations and visualizations, so you may focus in your knowledge, not the code. As you make adjustments, the device generates code utilizing open-source Python libraries for the information transformation operations you carry out. This implies you may write higher knowledge preparation packages quicker and with fewer errors. The code additionally retains Knowledge Wrangler clear and helps you confirm the correctness of the operation as you go.

Within the machine studying and AI realm, Azure Machine Studying Visible Studio Code Internet integration is now in public preview. VS Code for the Internet gives you with a full-featured growth setting for constructing your machine studying initiatives, all from the browser and with out required installations or dependencies. And by connecting your Azure Machine Studying compute occasion, you get the wealthy and built-in growth expertise VS Code gives, enhanced by the facility of Azure Machine Studying. Moreover, Immediate Stream for Azure Machine Studying is now in preview! Immediate Stream gives a streamlined expertise for prompting, evaluating, tuning, and operationalizing massive language fashions. With immediate move, you may rapidly create immediate workflows that join to varied language fashions and knowledge sources. This permits for constructing clever purposes and assessing the standard of your workflows to decide on the very best immediate in your case.

These are solely among the many issues we sit up for chatting with you at EuroPython. However if you happen to can’t make it there, no drawback – you may all the time connect with us by means of our Discord channel.

Whether or not it’s in particular person or just about, all of us sit up for assembly you!
