Microsoft incorporates Python into Excel

Microsoft Corporation is releasing a new version of Excel that will allow users to write and execute Python code within the spreadsheet editor’s interface.

In a blog post published today, Stefan Kinnestrand, general manager of product marketing at Microsoft, described the update. The public preview version of the Python support is currently accessible.
