Episode #17: Python on bare metal with MicroPython

Published Tues, Jul 21, 2015, recorded Thurs, Jun 25, 2015.


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.
