Python Script in Power BI
It's great that Power BI already has the capability to run R scripts for data transformation. It would be even better if we could run Python script.
My hope that this will happen in the near future rises as Python gets implemented into SQL Server 2017 now, using the same techniques as used for R integration:
"The addition of Python builds on the foundation laid for R Services in SQL Server 2016 and extends that mechanism to include Python support for in-database analytics and machine learning. We are renaming R Services to Machine Learning Services, and R and Python are two options under this feature."
Considering that Python is the goto language for prototyping and developing quick ML algorithms, having Python support in PowerBI will be an immense step forward from doing DataViz using Python's own packages (which are great but require complex code to enable interactive visual analysis). Please consider this feature request. It'll be a huge New Year's present :). No rush!
Python! We want to use python

I was at Microsoft last week and they told me they were working on it. So probably it is somewhere on their roadmap, but I imagine it's a pretty big thing to implement.

Surprising this isn't already in production for PowerBI.

As long Power BI does not support Python I'll stick to Tableau - sorry Microsoft ;P
Second that - give us Python script integration please !
What is Microsoft going to do regarding the python question? Yes, no maybe?
This would provide a good platform for presenting Reports with Data Science Algorithms behind the Scene.
Integrating R has been a nice step, Python would attract the rest of the Data Scientists.

Love the idea. Most other tools already provide for python which is THE language for data analysis
You know it makes sense.

This would be great. But I thought there was already a similar idea that had a lot more votes.
