We've just fallen across a browser reference to Microsoft MakeCode which allegedly solves everybody's Python programming problems in a flash and is better than roast goose or mince pies at Christmas
I am not convinced Microsoft has claimed as such.
It looks to be okay for what it is intended to do - introducing people to programming - and is not intended as a development environment for professional or experienced software engineers and computer programmers.
The fact that they offer a Blocky-style coding interface should suggest what level of experience they are targeting.
What they have seems to be the evolution of the work they initially did to support micro:bit and the types of projects and learning which would be done with that.
