Hi Uri, just wanted to mention that I'd love to see micropython running in this emulator too (in any following episode, after the important stuff). Continue your awesome work mate, you're killing it!

I woke up this morning, and saw this message in the YouTube chat for the live stream today. Thank you Andreas!

I'm not sure if we'll actually get to try MicroPython today. The chances are slim, but I'm optimist, so better be prepared.

Here is how I compiled MicroPython for the RP2040:

git clone
cd micropython
git submodule update --init lib/pico-sdk lib/tinyusb
make -C mpy-cross
cd ports/rp2

The compiled files can be found inside ports/rp2/build, and you'll also find there a disassembly of the firmware (similar to the ones we looked at in the previous live streams). Enjoy!
