MicroPython is a Python3 for resource constrained systems, allowing you to develop IoT software in a pleasant high-level language and run it on a cheap microcontroller.
We'll look at:
* installing MicroPython on ESP8266 and ESP32
* inputs and outputs
* building MicroPython from source
* contributing to MicroPython
You'll need something to run MicroPython on. If you made your own LoliBot at the Open Hardware Miniconf, bring that, otherwise we have a limited number of ESP8266 modules available to purchase as part of your LCA ticket (under "extras"). Bring your own MicroUSB cable!
