The Micro:bit Foundation was contacted a while back by Will, a 13-year-old student, who had created a txting package for the micro:bit in MicroPython. In his message he said: “I love using Python with my micro:bit and I created a text messaging program in MicroPython”. We were of course thrilled. The person who recieved Will’s message wrote to the rest of the team: “A 13-year-old has written a lovely little communicator using Python and two micro:bits – something to consider for the website for an article perhaps?” There was, of course, no argument, so, eventually, here is Will’s Micro:bit Txting Program.
