[0xB] June 2019

We met on Thursday, the 13th of June at the Code Factory.

Elen started her presentation by briefly telling us about MicroPython and the ESP8266 – a very cheap microcontroller that is often used in Internet of Things devices. Then it was time to connect to our boards and write some Python code to get the led light to blink! After that Zoé explained some basic principles of electronics.

The slides and some useful scripts are available here.

If you feel like experimenting (= automating all the things) with the ESP8266 microcontroller, there will be some at July’s meetup that you can buy for 2 euros!

the led can be turned on and off at the press of a button (programmed in less than 15 lines of Python code!)
