Using MicroPython in the wild – Damien George


Using MicroPython in the wild – Damien George

MicroPython is a complete reimplementation of Python that runs on small devices like microcontrollers. It enables users to build cool stuff – like Internet of Things devices – by combining their existing Python knowledge with a little bit of hands-on hardware hacking. In this talk I will start with a brief overview of MicroPython, how it works, how you can try it out, and how you can use it. I will then discuss some of the technical advances in the MicroPython software that have occurred over the past 12 months. Finally, I will talk about some of the things MicroPython is being used for, from robotics to IoT.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
