I'm up to my armpits in alligators at the moment -- can you ask him to email me at max.maxfield@ubm.com

@Duane: I think I'll keep a watch on them and buy one when they have general availability.

Let me know when they become available.

Hi Max, Duane,

Yes this is for me the true Python to embed. The community of Python developers that are working on the sofware are truly awsome.

However I missed another Kickstarter with Spark which I like and had to buy from CPC/Farnell when it when mass production. Internet enabled at chip level brings the inetrnet of things a bit closer to the DIY projects.

I suspect that Dameon George the MicroPython owner might be open to a Blog on EE-Times and who knows ther might be a sample for Max if it got a good feed back?

That's one I think I would have backed too. I think I'll keep a watch on them and buy one when they have general availability.

@Crusty: Well as a backer I can say that it works dierectly out the box.

Well, I only wish I'd heard about this little rascal when it was still a Kickstarter project -- how come you didn't tell me about it?

I received my MicroPython board, too, but haven't had time to play with it yet.  I'm interesting in comparing it against comparable boards (e.g. TI Connected LaunchPad, ST Nucleo, ST Discovery) and comparably priced boards (e.g. RPi, BeagleBone).

It's a cute board, but when you can get a RPi for $25/$35 and a BeagleBone for $45/$55, it becomes more of a niche board.


I think the real potential for MicroPython doesn't come from using the board, but from porting it to your own designs (e.g. a full custom design using a STM32F4), which should be possible since it's open source.

Well as a backer I can say that it works dierectly out the box.

It packs quite a punch for it's size and to my way of thinking, maybe because I like lower level hardware, I feel better with it than I do the Raspberry Pi.

The only problem is yet another language to get to grips with.

I had blinky working on it. Now for some thing different!!
