PyLadies x MicroPython @ PyCon DE

Im Rahmen unseres Förderprogramms unterstützen wir die PyLadies bei einem Workshop auf der PyConDE um Teilnehmer*innen mit Hardware auszustatten.

As part of PyCon DE 18 Pyladies and MicroPython will be running a
beginner friendly full day hands-on workshop on MicroPython and the
IoT. We welcome anyone with existing programming knowlegde or who is
code curious to join us.

You received a pyboard last year during PyCon DE but did not really do
something with it until today? We want to change this! So bring your board
along or any other MicroPython related hardware.

If you have existing hardware feel free to bring it along, you can
also purchase hardware here or on the day. We will also have units
you can work with without having to purchase them. Lunch will be
provided and at the end of the day we will run a presentation of what
has been produced (optional).

Buying the hardware does not automatically sign you up for this workshop.

Please note that MicroPython is an Open Source project that funds itself solely
through selling hardware. If you like to support this – please consider buying
the hardware.

is a lean and efficient implementation of Python 3 that includes a
small subset of the Python standard library and is optimised to run on
microcontrollers and in constrained environments. The MicroPython
Pyboard is a compact electronic circuit board that runs MicroPython on
the bare metal, giving you a low-level Python operating system that
can be used to control all kinds of electronic projects. The pyboard
is the official MicroPython microcontroller board with full support
for software features.

Gender policy

We believe knowledge is for all and at the same time our events aim
primarily to empower women tech community. We request non female
attendees to be aware of these situation and make their presence
discrete. Eg. by coming with a female plus one to ensure gender
balance, avoiding to be heard more than the rest of the attendees in
discussions and question sections.
