The April 2017 issue has an article on building a robot using the Micro:bit.

Yes. There's a brief mention of Damien and the Python Software Foundation. Beyond that it's a good beginner level tutorial on using MicroPython to control hardware.

The robot is based on the Micro:bit and uses a second Micro:bit as a remote control. New to me is the fact that the Micro:bit has a radio link (other than Bluetooth) which is accessible from MicroPython.
