Python on bare metal with MicroPython

Episode #17, published Tue, Jul 21, 2015, recorded Thu, Jun 25, 2015.

This episode is carbon neutral.
How many layers of abstraction and indirection are between your python code and machine instructions? What if that number could be 1 and Python itself was the operating system? That would be so amazing, right?

In fact, it is amazing and it's called Micropython. Join Michael and Damien as they discuss the genesis, philosophy, internals, and more about MicroPython; Damien's Python on a chip implementation.
