TriPython June 2016 Meeting: Is your refrigerator running Python? MicroPython - A Python implementation running on bare metal
MicroPython is optimized to run fast and lean without the need for an underlying operating system. Damien George spearheaded the development of MicroPython with a Kickstarter Campaign funded in 2014. This talk will cover a brief history of MicroPython, optimal use cases, current packages, future development and a short 'hello world' level demo of MicroPython running on an ESP8266 WiFi enabled Microprocessor. Greg Frazier presents. Greg is a Business Analyst with a past in electronics development and semiconductor testing. Greg is new to Python and coding in general. Extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration are also welcome and don't need to be pre-announced. This will be our first meeting in our new Durham location, Iron Yard Durham, which is the American Tobacco Underground downtown. There is free parking in the American Tobacco South Deck at 705 Willard Street. Because there is a Durham Bulls home game at the same time, you will need to tell the parking attendant that you are attending a meeting in the American Tobacco complex in order to avoid a $5 charge. The meeting will be followed by our usual after-meeting at a nearby tavern for food and beverage. Come join us for a fun and informative evening.
