Opinions differ about what the most-used programming language in right now is, but it's hard to deny both the popularity and versatility of Python. In the nearly 30 years since it was invented it has grown from niche language to full-blown development environment that seems to be everywhere these days. That includes our beloved microcontrollers now with CircuitPython, greatly lowering the bar for entry-level hackers and simplifying and speeding development for old hands and providing a path to a Python-powered Internet of Things.

The CircuitPython team from Adafruit Industries will drop by the Hack Chat to answer all your questions about Python and the IoT. Join us as we discuss:

  • How CircuitPython came to be;
  • The range of IoT products that support Python;
  • Getting started with Python on IoT devices; and
  • What's on the horizon for a Python-powered IoT?

And as extra enticement, we'll be giving away five free one-year passes to! We'll draw five names at random from the list of Hack Chat attendees. Stop by for a chance to win.

The Adafruit team will be streaming video live during the Hack Chat as well.

And the team made a Python-powered display that gets the time over the net and displays the days, hours, and minutes to the Hack Chat.
