MicroBlocks is a new FLOSS programming language, inspired by Scratch, that runs right inside microcontroller boards such as the BBC micro:bit, NodeMCU, and many Arduino boards. Thanks to a collaboration with the Mozilla IoT team, it now interfaces neatly with the Web of Things ecosystem. In this session you'll learn how you can use MicroBlocks to create games, jewelry, or digital measurement tools, and connect turn them into network-enabled devices. Bring your laptop! We'll provide some micro:bits to share; feel free to bring your own, too.

This is a Shed session.
