I just gave this talk to the Toronto Raspberry Pi Meetup group: Getting Started with MicroPython on the Raspberry Pi Pico. Slides are here:
or, if you must, pptx:
PDF, for the impatient:
If I were to do this again, I’d drop the messy thermistor code as an example and use a DS18x20, like here: Raspberry Pi Pico: DS18x20 in MicroPython
also, simple potentiometer demo I wrote during the talk: potentiometer.py
iRed Lite is just the thing if you’re rushing to put a presentation together, and you want to use your Apple Remote to flip the slides
Well, I talked myself hoarse (must learn to project!), and I think it went well; no-one feigned death or sudden illness.
The ATI Remote Wonder performed flawlessly. It may be ugly, but it works.
I’m giving my wind talk to the Lambton Chapter of the PEO tonight: Wind Energy for the Perplexed.
If all goes well, I’ll be able to use my ATI Remote Wonder to control the slides, as I found an OS X driver for the Remote Wonder. Yay!
I was at Nicholas Stern‘s presentation to the Economic Club of Toronto today (as was Bob, David, Deb, Glenn, Paul, and about 490 others). He was very low-key; not sure if his dry sense of humour got the response he expected. The CBC covered it.
The slides for my talk tomorrow are online: Wind Energy, Appropriate Energy. I used the very nifty S5 presentation package.
Eric Meyer’s S5: A Simple Standards-Based Slide Show System is extremely cool. I’ve chosen it for my presentation on Thursday night, because it’s very simple yet quite pretty.
