Welcome to the Intermediate MicroPython course! Building on the foundations laid in the Learn MicroPython - the basics course, this course delves into more advanced topics, equipping you with the knowledge and skills to tackle complex projects with confidence.

What You Will Learn

In this course, we will explore several key areas of MicroPython:

  • Object-Oriented Programming (OOP):
    • Classes and Objects: Learn how to create and utilize classes and objects to write structured and reusable code.
    • Encapsulation and Polymorphism: Understand the principles of encapsulation and polymorphism to enhance code flexibility and security.
  • Modules and Packages:
    • Organizing Code: Discover how to organize your code into modules and packages for better maintainability and scalability.
    • Importing and Using Modules: Learn to import and effectively use both built-in and custom modules in your projects.
  • Decorators:
    • Function Modifiers: Explore how decorators can modify the behavior of functions and methods without changing their code.
    • Practical Applications: Apply decorators to implement logging, access control, and more in your projects.
  • DocStrings:
    • Documentation Strings: Master the art of writing clear and informative documentation strings for your functions, classes, and modules.
    • Accessing Documentation: Learn how to access and utilize DocStrings to improve code readability and maintainability.
  • Interrupts and Timers:
    • Event-Driven Programming: Understand how to use interrupts to respond immediately to external events, such as button presses.
    • Timing Control: Learn to use timers for precise timing control in your applications, essential for tasks like motor control and sensor reading.
  • MP Remote:
    • Device Management: Get hands-on experience with MP Remote, a powerful command-line tool for managing MicroPython devices.
    • File Operations and Scripting: Learn to upload, download, and execute scripts on your MicroPython boards efficiently.
