Getting started with MicroPython

It's an exciting time to work with technologies such as MicroPython. They make tiny and inexpensive hardware devices more accessible, as you can use a high-level language such as Python to code on them. Tasks such as retrieving data from web services can easily be done in a few lines of code, compared to other microcontroller languages that would require many more steps, because they operate at such a low level compared to Python. This is very empowering, as you will get results faster and be able to iterate through different designs and prototypes in a shorter amount of time.

In this chapter, we will provide you with the essential skills to get started and be productive with the software and hardware needed ...
