Re: PyConAu Talk - any suggestions?

It would seem that for an audience of mostly desktop Python users, a talk would need to give some kind of gentle introduction to embedded programming in general. Even idea #2 would need some mention of C or C++ and something like the Arduino platform. I think you should forego the comparison and ins...

Re: Running webserver and other code simultaneously

Here is a simple web server based on the uasyncio example, that I know works on the ESP8266 and the D1 Mini. I have yet to implement another coro but perhaps Peter's tutorial will help you with that. # # Simple HTTP server based on the uasyncio example script # by J.G. Wezensky (joewez@gmail.com) # ...

Re: Chinese Micropython Clones(?)

Don't get me wrong, I am happy with the board... it's just some of the finishing work like the headers... they were soldered in pretty quickly apparently... 20180515_185641.jpg Notice the angle? And some of the soldering is kind of blobish. 20180520_191754.jpg It's not terrible by any measure... the...

Differences between CH340 & CP210X Boards
