Just to clarify one thing: you don't need a special license to get 
Visual Studio Community Edition to work on Python, even within a big 
company - it's free for open source work, and has everything we need.

But request the MSDN Subscription anyway. It looks good to have a lot of 
demand coming from the Python community :) (plus it should include a 
chunk of Azure time if you need VMs, and probably some VSTS bonuses 
these days though I haven't checked that).

+1, and thanks Brian for continuing to coordinate this!
