I will show how N=4 SYM can be discretized on a lattice while preserving some supersymmetry. Recent improvements to the lattice action now allow simulations for arbitrarily strong 't Hooft coupling $\lambda$. I will show some preliminary results for supersymmetric Wilson loops which clearly show the absence of confinement and the $\sqrt{\lambda}$ dependence at strong coupling expected from holography.
