I had previously vowed to never use Python in protest of its use of significant whitespace.

However, I've been seduced by microprogramming projects using ESP8266 chips on which Micropython is a major player. LUA is my other option but comes with disadvantages.

I may have to learn one of them and the allure of micropython is WebREPL which leads me to believe I can create a little dynamic webserver on about $10 worth of components drawing modest usb power.

It's not so much the webserver part that's interesting but these devices are so cheap and easy to program against and wire things into you can automate most of your home with them if you're inclined. They're magic, and they all speak WiFi.

If I can run python on an $8 chip that I can slave an arduino mega 2560 to I will rule the world (or at least the gadgets in my home) for about $15. Woo!

This is fun.

Python tho. Seriously. Python.
Real programmers use butterflies
