Trying Python

I attended a workshop that taught programmers how to use a Python via Wi-fi. The workshop was pretty simple, seeing as I know Arduino, It was easier to understand how to do some stuff. We started by using the famous ‘blink’ example, connecting the python board to my Mac. Then we disconnected it and communicated it via a wireless network and made a folder in the computer that communicated with it.

 

I have never used python before, but it was nice to learn how to do the basics. In the workshop, I was taught how to use Mac’s Terminal to type simple commands to communicate with the python and then connect to it’s wireless network. It was handy to learn this because I could possibly do some more stuff in the future with python especially if I want to make a piece of assistive technology that communicates wirelessly. Here are a few screenshots:
