Embedding Python in a C++ Project

In this episode, Robert is joined by Steve Dower, who walks through a sample project that demonstrates scripting a C++ application with Python using CPython, PyBind11 and Visual Studio 2017. He shows how you can extend a C++ application with Python scripts, modify code without having to recompile, do mixed Python/C++ debugging and enable IntelliSense support by adding hints.
