Book Description

Python Tools for Visual Studio is a free and open source plugin for Visual Studio from Microsoft. It enables developers to use all the major productivity features of Visual Studio in their projects. The powerful integrated code navigation and code completion tools (IntelliSense) in PTVS empower developers to significantly speed up the coding process.
PTVS provides a unique IDE for either Python or IronPython languages, taking advantage of the .NET framework in plain Python projects.

This book provides a detailed insight into Python tools in Visual studio to help Python developers implement a more productive and efficient workflow.

Starting with the installation and configuration of PTVS, you will be familiarized with the various tools and panels available. Throughout the book, you will learn about how to speed up coding sessions with handy tips on refactoring and debugging. Moving on towards IntelliSense and the project setup, you will also learn about how PTVS does project handling, and how you can use Python environments for your project.

You then round off things by delving into Django development and library management in Visual Studio to gain advanced knowledge on Django web development for web applications.
