As always I learned a lot and really enjoyed bouncing ideas off other ideas.
MicroPython on ESP32
I talk about where the ESP32 port of MicroPython is at, and why I think it is particularly interesting, and shamelessly plug the sprint and meetup group.
A lightning talk on a rather silly idea.
Other People’s Talks
Huge number of videos up here: PyConAu 2017 on YouTube
Some fairly arbitrary choices of things which grabbed me:
- Tim ‘mithro’ Ansell “Using Python For Creating Hardware To Record FOSS Conferences”
- Damien George “Using MicroPython in the wild”
- Anna Gerber “Progam all the things!”
- Peter Hall “A Brief History of ‘What is the Time?’”
- Alexis Lucattini “Remote DNA Sequencing and Analysis”
- Katie McLaughlin “How to handle abandoned projects, Take Two” (keynote)
- Andreas Moll “Lightflow”
- Jim Mussared “Tuning in with SDR & Python”
- Aurynn Shaw “When Do We Belong?”
Sprinting on MicroPython / ESP32
About 100 people attended the Monday sprints, with about 20 working on MicroPython / ESP32 related topics. Thanks to sponsorship from Espressif we were able to give away a whole bunch of ESP32 DevKitCs to attendees interested in working on the port.
