Is there really any advantage in using MicroPython instead of the conventional C++ with the Arduino IDE or Eclipse?
Doesn’t look like it is fully supported (yet) and is not really any easier to learn??
C++ and MicroPython are different ways to program your boards. In my opinion, MicroPython is easier to learn – but it will depend on your background.
MicroPython is simpler and less prone to syntax errors when compared with Arduino programming language. On the other hand, MicroPython doesn’t have as much support in terms of libraries. Nonetheless, there are available libraries for the most common tasks and sensors usage.
