Hi all - we'll get started in just a minute. Quite a turnout so far..
@jkshaffstall there is unicode support, we just got a Chinese translation
@jkshaffstall UTF-8 should work
we're still fixing trickier issues with it though
yay python3 unicode! more bytes() but its worth it
(though the Chinese translation uses pinyin)
@Kattni and all the CP member for giving me a shot at itThanks to you too
Oh, right, Unicode, forgot, way cool guys... And yes, it is worth it. Old geezer here. That's why reference to ASCII...
you can use ascii if ya like :) check the german translation has plenty-o nonascii chars
but really, when is CircuitPerl going to happen?
In transmitting, code and data are irrelevant.
are you planning to have another Hack Chat in the future?
If you want to see what it's like to add translation strings, check out the Pirate translation!
(running on microcontrollers more powerful than the supercomputers it ran on originally)
Good choice Scott...:)
python is not toooo different than perl :) i think the additions of python make it the best choice. i really love perl but writin' is on the wall
@deshipu well, if you're going with CircuitCOBAL let's not forget CircuitFORTRAN
If Perl is the past and Python is the present, any thoughts on the future?
@limor haha yeah I only do Perl one-liners nowadays. I'm kinda sad for Perl
there's already circuitscheme, golang, rust for the samd
These provide a description of Lispy and a good introduction to the techniques and considerations of implementing another programming language in Python. This guide will not replicate the content of those papers. You may read them, then come back and see how we can use this in CircuitPython.
Pascal ? :)
note 6.001 ditched scheme for python
I was following along but hadn't clicked "join"
so that's that for me - i have to go where sussman says
or ADA ? :))
@WRR I think python is the future as well
@euchcat there have to be some limits
Is there a future for C++ ???
python is the #1 growing language, used by kids, students, biologists, mathematicians...everyone
We've got about five minutes left. I've got the winners of the giveaway...
ooh ooh....did i win did i win????
@jkshaffstall languages don't die, there are still COBOL programmers hiding in the basements of swiss banks
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements. Thanks to Adafruit for the prizes, and for the great Hack Chat.
congrats to the winners (and the rest of us too)
A basement? hmmm, just like me....
Congrats to the winners!
we're allwinners here
there's lot of really good information in this chat thread... would all these info be available for later view..?
C is more predictable than C++
nice, what did I win?
we still support C++/Arduino for our drivers, and CircuitPython is written in C
@delatorrecohen there is a text log here and we'll post the video in the log too
@delatorrecohen usually there are transcripts saved on the event's page
Are there still people using UCSD Pascal?
Yes, I'm doing the transcript this afternoon
Thanks everyone from Adafruit for stopping by
Yah - thank you very much Adafruit and friends!
@Dan Maloney :-)Thank you
Huge thanks to the Adafruit folks for all the hard work on improving embedded development's approachability! This was really interesting
UCSD Pascal was my first language that was higher level that assembly (no, I don't count Basic)
Thanks to everyone for being here!
Thank you Adafruit guys :-)
Pascal was the Python of the 90's. Didn't go anywhere though....
thanks folks, and you're welcome!
dave - Me too
255 character strings
@euchcat Ada works fine on the STM32 series microcontrollers
we use python as the lengua franca for our physics curriculum so we appreciate having a micro-controller that lets our students use the same structure
Thanks so much, this was a ton of fun!
@Martin Hoecker-Martinez Excellent!
thanks for the awesome hack chat. It is so worth it for not sleeping tonight since it is 3 AM here
there is actually jupyter support for micropython!
In this learn guide, we're going to walk through installing Jupyter Notebook, installing the Jupyter CircuitPython kernel, and uploading Jupyter Notebook examples.
@Hendra Kusumah and thank you for the translation!thanks for making it
This was a lot of fun following along.
This is a much more interactive chat than I'm use too. Great job.
One of the fastest chats I've seen in a while. Thanks everyone!
ok, thanks everyone!
Thank you everyone!
