Motivations for MicroPython:

Why Not Use CPython?



Damien covered his experiences with Kickstarter.

Internals of MicroPython:

Coding Style:

Coding was more based on a physicist trying to make things work, than a computer engineer.


Listed some of the micro controller boards that it runs on ad larger computers that currently run OpenWRT.

Spoke about the BBC micron:bit project. Demo'd speech synthesis and image display running on it.

MicroPython in Space:

Spoke about the port to LEON / SPARC / RTEMS for the European Space agency for satellite control, particularly the application layer.

Damien closed with an overview of current applications and ongoing software and hardware development.
