Python's journey at Microsoft

When you think about Microsoft, do you think about Python? Maybe not, but you probably should. They have been doing an incredible amount of work to improve Python for folks on Windows as well as the broader community. You can think of the wild growth of Visual Studio code. But did you know that 5 core developers work there and the majority of Python development happens on Windows?

Love this show
I get sad after listening to every new episode because I have to wait for the next one.

Michael Kennedy has a fantastic personality for tech podcasts, I have always found his explanations light-hearted enough to be entertaining, but with enough detail that it's interesting and worth listening to in order to learn. In my experience, that's a rare combination in tech podcasts.
