    Hi Phil, Hi Limor!

    tannewt says:an hour ago

    Hi all, I'm Scott and go by tannewt online. I'm the core dev on CircuitPython

    limor says:an hour ago

    hi im limor

    limor says:an hour ago

    so about circuit python

    winkininkler says:an hour ago

    hi limor!

    limor says:an hour ago

    a version of python (the language/interpreter) that runs on small microcontrollers

    tdicola says:an hour ago

    Hey I'm Tony, I do lots of python related things like guides and videos for Raspberry Pi, MicroPython, CircuitPython, etc.

    limor says:an hour ago

    and is a derivative of micropython

    limor says:an hour ago

    micropython is by damien george!

    limor says:an hour ago

    he had a 'bet' - could python run on an stm32 or microbit

    pt says:an hour ago

    i'm @pt i work with these smart folks and a long time ago i started hackaday.com

    limor says:an hour ago

    whats neat is the microbit is

    limor says:an hour ago

    128k flash, 16k ram

    limor says:an hour ago

    soooo smalll

    an hour ago

    does it have sensors on it?

    limor says:an hour ago

    huh!

    limor says:an hour ago

    didnt know you could actually do that

    limor says:an hour ago

    so we were like

    limor says:an hour ago

    well, ya know

    keebie81 says:an hour ago

    it has temperature, microphone, accelerometer

    limor says:an hour ago

    it would be neat we port micropython to run on the atsamd21 proc

    tdicola says:an hour ago

    Yep the microbit has a few sensors like an accelerometer, light sensor, temperature, etc.

    winkininkler says:an hour ago

    Hey, I am WCHSPLTW. I teach digital circuits in high school and I excited to try out Circuit Python. I feel like Arduino has too many hurdles for some most high school kids. Also, I loved Visual Python in college.

    limor says:an hour ago

    a cortex m0 from atmela (now mcp)

    todbot says:an hour ago

    thumbs up for SAMD parts

    limor says:an hour ago

    this chip is sorta (imo) the next gen atmega328

    limor says:an hour ago

    used in the arduino uno

    pt says:an hour ago

    thanks @winkininkler that's why we are doing this, simple, no IDE even needed and python

    limor says:an hour ago

    cool thing about the 328 is its popular

    limor says:an hour ago

    not so cool, only 32k flash and 2 k ram

    limor says:an hour ago

    an no native usb

    tannewt says:an hour ago

    @winkininkler awesome! MicroPython and CircuitPython don't require any extra software to get going!

    an hour ago

    hi @winkininkler, welcome!

    limor says:an hour ago

    samd has DMA< spi, i2c, uart, native usb client host, 256k flash, 32 k ram, tons of extras

    tannewt says:an hour ago

    CircuitPython also auto-resets after you save a file which makes it really fast to experiment

    limor says:an hour ago

    and its kinda cheap, $2 EA

    limor says:an hour ago

    use it

    limor says:an hour ago

    arduino is grat

    limor says:an hour ago

    love it

    limor says:an hour ago

    its too hard to get started

    limor says:an hour ago

    nowadays we have to reach more people

    limor says:an hour ago

    c is too hard a languge

    turbinenreiter says:an hour ago

    I'm Sebastian, an Aersopace Engineering student in Munich and I'm currently writing my master thesis. Topic: Evaluation of MicroPython...
