Hi guys, I’ve been very busy in the last two months and I couldn’t add any articles to the site or send any newsletters to my fellow readers. I’m so sorry for that, but I hope you will forgive me with this rich newsletter and the articles I’m writing and that will be published soon, so… stay tuned!
Before the monthly links, as always, let me remember you that if you like The Python Corner you can help me keep up all this work with a donation by PayPal or by buying us a coffee. Every single dollar is important to keep alive this place and hopefully, one day I will be able to keep the site alive just with the donations of the readers and making the site totally ads-free… quoting Fox Mulder: I want to believe! :)
… and if you don’t know who Fox Mulder was… that’s not a big problem, welcome to the newsletter kiddo! :)))

This is the dev blog of Python developers in Microsoft. Could be a worthy read, especially if you work with VSCode and want to be up to date with all the latest news about this software.
I think that VSCode is a really good IDE for Python, probably one of the best products Microsoft has ever released (even if at the moment I’m giving another try to Sublime Text 4).

I’ve used conda for quite a long time and even if lately, I’m looking at different solutions to manage my virtual environments (Poetry, I’m looking at you…) I have to admit that conda is probably the best and easier way to create and manage a virtual environment, so my advice is: if you haven’t tried it yet, give it a try.
