Pylance is an extension that works alongside Python in Visual Studio Code to provide performant
language support. Under the hood, Pylance is powered by Pyright, Microsoft's static type checking tool. Using Pyright,
Pylance has the ability to supercharge your Python IntelliSense experience with rich type information, helping you write better code faster.

The Pylance name is a small ode to Monty Python's Lancelot who was the first knight to answer the
bridgekeeper's questions in the Holy Grail.
