Python Support will aid local production workload for developers. It will enable developers to build their server-less function using Python 3.6 based on the open-source and cross-platform functions 2.0 run time, and publish to a Linux-based hosting platform in Azure.
It will also ensure an end-to-end experience for Python developers, without having to leave Microsoft cloud when using its language, libraries, and tools.
The unleashing of Python for Azure also follows the release of Azure SDK for python in August, a package that aids access to Microsoft Azure services.
The Audience Developer for Microsoft, Rory Preddy described the launch of the new Azure function as a step in line with the company’s mission to witness developers’ growth in their cloud journey.
Rory noted that the company has built an open platform in Azure that will help developers work in any language which can be integrated into the Azure platform. It will also enable developers who make use of Python do several things within Azure-like development, AI and server-less or cloud solution.
With the newly introduced Python Support in Azure, South African developers will be able to
- Build a better Python web application faster in the cloud using Microsoft managed application and connect their apps to data through Azure services
- Easily build, train, host and deploy models from any Python environment with Azure services for data science and machine learning or bring in pre-built AI solutions to deliver cutting-edge experiences to their Python apps.
- Build and debug their Python apps with Visual Studio Code, push their apps to the cloud with a few clicks, use the cloud-based Azure DevOps and adopt a full DevOps lifecycle for their Python apps.
The Python support function will spin up Python DevOps with a free Linux tier. The Python Ecosystem tools naturally complement to Azure ecosystem and will give Python developers the same rich Microsoft tooling which has become the industry standard.
