I've commented in the above topic, so I am well aware of all topics citing LoPy, etc, in this forum.pfalcon wrote:Then you must have been sitting under the rock, because everyone on this forum knew about that yet in January/February: http://forum.micropython.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1350.rcolistete wrote: IMHO, it is nonsense to try to hide one of two great MicroPython 2016 announcements (ESP8266 with MicroPython & LoPy in January/February 2016) from the MicroPython community.
I think the opposite : better promote MicroPython attracting new users (from new boards) to his forum, to do so, make it more attractive (.e.g, create sections for MCU boards with many users).pfalcon wrote:However, if LoPy creators decided to create their own forum, it's their right, and owners of this forum hopefully won't try to proactively interfere with their desire to consolidate "their" users. This forum remains about all things MicroPython, and if practice shows that there's considerable share of LoPy, etc. users on this forum in 6-12 month, a dedicated section specifically for them will be explicitly designated.
BBC Micro:bit is an example, where IMHO the BBC Micro:bit section in this forum should be created 4 months before (in May when it was hot news in UK, maybe some of them could cite this forum and attract thousands of views).
Proposing to wait 6-12 months to create a LoPy section here is a bad joke as IoT MCU boards has some months (12 ?) of commercial life cycle.
Being slow (months do decide simple things, etc) in the IoT world is like asking to continue to be or become small (MicroPython as a plataform versus other ones).
