Here was today’s MicroPython newsletter. Also included it in this post too.
Are you curious where MicroPython came from and why it was created? Watch this excellent PyCon Australia 2016 talk from Damien George, the creator of MicroPython, titled MicroPython: A Journey from Kickstarter to Space. Damien describes why he created MicroPython, what it can do, and some plans for the future of MicroPython.
Don’t miss the latest 1.8.7 release of MicroPython too! In particular this release adds support for assembly language output on ESP8266 and related boards which could improve performance in the future.
Adafruit’s CircuitPython beta is up to version 0.8.3 too and includes a number of small bug fixes. Don’t know what CircuitPython is or have questions about it? Be sure to watch this intro to CircuitPython beta video, and check out the CircuitPython hack chat on hackaday.io Friday January 27th at 3pm EST.
