You've learned the MicroPython programming language! MicroPython is a tiny open-source Python programming language interpreter that runs on microcontroller, originally written by Damien George (http://micropython.org/). With MicroPython you can write clean and simple Python code to control hardware instead of having to use complex low-level languages like C or C++ (what Arduino uses for programming). It's great for beginners!
The simplicity of the Python programming language makes MicroPython an excellent choice for beginners who are new to programming and hardware. However MicroPython is also quite full-featured and supports all of Python's syntax (Python version 3.4) and implements a small subset of the Python standard library so even seasoned Python veterans will find MicroPython familiar and fun to use.
Adafruit offers a fun and exciting "badges" to celebrate achievement for electronics, science and engineering. Adafruit believe everyone should be able to be rewarded for learning a useful skill, a badge is just one of the many ways to show and share.
The MicroPython badge is for use with educators, classrooms, workshops, Maker Faires, TechShops, 4H clubs, Hackerspaces, Makerspaces and around the world to reward beginners on their skill building journey!
This beautiful badge is made in the USA.
The badge is skillfully designed and sturdily made to last a lifetime, the backing is iron-on but the badge can also be sewn on. Each badge purchase helps support MicroPython project! Adafruit donates to Damien and the MicroPython project for each badge sold. You can also support MicroPython by purchasing official PyBoards
