What's your favorite Python editor? That is one of the questions I always ask at the end of the episode. This week I want to shine a light on a fantastic answer to that question for Windows developers: Visual Studio.

On this episode, you'll meet Steve Dower, from Microsoft's Python Tools for Visual Studio team. He's here to tell us all about it. We also cover Python on Windows, CPython, the 2016 BUILD conference and more.
