NEW PRODUCT – Python for Microcontrollers: Getting Started with MicroPython


MicroPython is a tiny open-source Python programming language interpreter that runs on microcontroller, originally written by Damien George (http://micropython.org/). With MicroPython you can write clean and simple Python code to control hardware instead of having to use complex low-level languages like C or C++ (what Arduino uses for programming). Its great for beginners!

The simplicity of the Python programming language makes MicroPython an excellent choice for beginners who are new to programming and hardware. However MicroPython is also quite full-featured and supports all of Python’s syntax (Python version 3.4) and implements a small subset of the Python standard library so even seasoned Python veterans will find MicroPython familiar and fun to use.

Program your own MicroPython projects with ease—no prior programming experience necessary! This DIY guide provides a practical introduction to microcontroller programming with MicroPython. Written by an experienced electronics hobbyist, it features eight start-to-finish projects with clear, easy-to-follow instructions for each. You will learn how to use sensors, store data, control motors and other devices, and work with expansion boards. From there, you’ll discover how to design, build, and program all kinds of entertaining and practical projects of your own.
