Come meet Microsoft & Adafruit at PyCon 2019!.

Demos, hands-on-labs, expert help and swag at the Microsoft booth

The Python team at Microsoft will be at the Microsoft booth in the expo hall during the opening reception 5:30-7:30PM Thursday May 2nd, and during the conference on Friday and Saturday. They will be handing out some fun and unique swag and will have members from across their team available to chat and show you the latest in Visual Studio Code, Azure, Windows, and Azure DevOps.

Work through hands-on labs to quickly try out the latest capabilities for yourself, and pick up an Adafruit lunchbox kit (while supplies last).

Pick up your Adafruit kit by completing labs before Friday afternoon, and ask about details about a special CircuitPython mini-workshop by the Adafruit team happening at our booth later that day.

We are encouraging folks to stop by before 2:30 pm on Friday to complete labs to pick up their lunchbox kit and learn more about Kattni’s workshop. We’ll have a sign-up sheet at the booth on the day of.

Getting Started with Python in VS Code

In this tutorial, you use Python 3 to create the simplest Python “Hello World” application in Visual Studio Code. By using the Python extension, you make VS Code into a great lightweight Python IDE (which you may find a productive alternative to PyCharm).

This tutorial is intended to introduce you to VS Code as a Python environment, primarily how to edit, run, and debug code. This tutorial is not intended to teach you Python itself. Once you are familiar with the basics of VS Code, you can then follow any of the programming tutorials listed on python.org within the context of VS Code for an introduction to the language.
