It would be great to have access to all the Python as well as R
I'm not familiar with R and don't wish to invest in learning it, when Python packages such as Scipy, Numpy, Pandas and Scikit-Learn meet most of my needs. I wish I could combine the power of these with Azure ML's slick interface, and easy-to-deploy APIs
This is now supported – here is the sample experiment – http://gallery.azureml.net/Details/978fa971bca845f39ee07fbbec23143d
You can also now publish web services directly from Python running locally (e.g. in Jupyter) or on the Azure ML Notebook Service. See the below link for more details on how to use this feature.

Hi George, Yes, Python support is there now with the popular packages and it was announced at Strata. Please use it and let us hear your thoughts.

Great to see Python scripting added to AzureML. Any public announcement?

We are working on providing python integration like R for AzureML as a top priority feature in an upcoming release
