MicroPython is easier to write, cleaner and clearer to read, and faster to get the results you want, than other languages such as C++.

Compare these two examples below.

First is a piece of code written for the Arduino in C++:


#include <iostream>

void main() {
  std::cout << "hello world";

The second piece of code is written in MicroPython:


  print(hello world)

As you can see, the MicroPython code is simpler, easier to read, shorter and faster to write.
