CircuitPython: Connecting a Robot Cat to the Internet

While many Internet of Things projects send data to the cloud, sometimes you want a physical indication of an event from the internet. In this course, Charlyn Gonda shows you how to use CircuitPython—a version of Python specifically for microcontrollers—to program a robot cat that reacts to events while connected to the internet. Charlyn shows how to code for common hardware devices like LEDs and servos, and explains a common messaging protocol for IoT projects called message queue telemetry transport, or MQTT. If you’re looking for an internet cat video that actually teaches you something useful, join Charlyn as she shows how to program this robot cat.
