Little wonders need some thanks

Post by roland_vs » Sat Nov 11, 2017 3:11 pm

Today I received another pyboard and LCD160. Works right out of the box!
Now my sensors will have a face thanks to:
@dpgeorge for micropython!
@pytoncoder for the nice gui!

I can only chime in.

I've been using MicroPython both privately and professionally for more than three years now and it makes embedded work so much more fun...

Thanks a lot!

I retired 13 years ago. In an effort to postpone the advent of senility I became enthused in turn by Phidgets, Arduino and the Raspberry Pi. But none captured my enthusiasm as much, or for as long, as the MicroPython project and the Pyboard. The potential for writing substantial amounts of embedded code in Python, with options of optimising for performance (even to the extent of supporting inline assembler) is unique.

And it keeps getting better. Continuing improvements to the highly efficient uasyncio allow responsive firmware to be written as the gods of programming intended: using cooperative multi-tasking.

I owe the fact that I can still count past 10 in binary to @Damien, @pfalcon and the other major contributors. Thanks are due :D

Thanks guys! It's my pleasure to have developed MicroPython and the pyboard. Coming from an academic background, it's the technical side of things that I enjoy the most, and still everyday I love finding new ways to optimise and improve the code. And it's fantastic to have people using the software and hardware in new and interesting ways (in contrast to academic papers, most of which are read only by a handful of people).

BTW: behind the scenes we've been hard at work on the next pyboard. It's been a long time in the making but please stay tuned for more news about it soon!
