CourseMarks Score®

8.5 / 10

CourseMarks Score® helps students to find the best classes. We aggregate 18 factors, including freshness, student feedback and content diversity.

Freshness Score

9.2 / 10
This course was last updated on 08/2020.

Course content can become outdated quite quickly. After analysing 71,530 courses, we found that the highest rated courses are updated every year. If a course has not been updated for more than 2 years, you should carefully evaluate the course before enrolling.

Student Feedback

We analyzed factors such as the rating and the ratio between the number of reviews and the number of students, which is a great signal of student commitment. If a course does not yet have a rating, we exclude Feedback Score from the overall CourseMarks Score.

New courses are hard to evaluate because there are no or just a few student ratings, but Student Feedback Score helps you find great courses even with fewer reviews.

Content Score

7.4 / 10
Video Score: 7.5 / 10
The course includes 3h47m video content. Courses with more videos usually have a higher average rating. We have found that the sweet spot is 16 hours of video, which is long enough to teach a topic comprehensively, but not overwhelming. Courses over 16 hours of video gets the maximum score.
The average video length is 12 hours 07 minutes of 76 Hardware courses on Simpliv Learning.

Description

This beginner level course has twin objectives: –

Introduce you to the Pyboard
Introduce you to MicroPython
By the end of this course, you would have developed a firm grasp of the hardware capabilities of the Pyboard and learnt to program it using MicroPython. We assume passing familiarity with the Python Programming language on the part of the learner.

Other than hardware and embedded enthusiasts, this course is also designed to be a gateway to embedded programming for folks coming from hardcore programming background with zero knowledge of electronic development boards. We think hobbyists and hard core engineers (hardware and software) alike will learn much from this course.

Basic knowledge
To get maximum value out of this course, you should have at least a basic knowledge of programming principles
Familiarity with Python will help you to follow this course easily
You will also need to know some of the basic electronic concepts and experience with microcontroller boards like Arduino will help you in following this course

Requirements

• To get maximum value out of this course, you should have at least a basic knowledge of programming principles
• Familiarity with Python will help you to follow this course easily
• You will also need to know some of the basic electronic concepts and experience with microcontroller boards like Arduino will help you in following this course

You will learn

What you will learn
✓ This course will teach you the programming language MicroPython, it’s essential features and the platform or the microcontroller on which it will run, called the Pyboard
✓ You will also develop enough confidence to program MicroPython compatible boards other than the Pyboard using MicroPython
✓ By the end of this course, you will be able to build non-trivial projects using the Pyboard, by programming it using MicroPython

This course is for

• A Python developer without hardware experience looking to get started in embedded programming.
• Someone familiar with conventional microcontroller programming, but are looking to use a high-level language to program the microcontroller.
• An electronics hobbyist or an enthusiast looking to explore the Pyboard and MicroPython.
• A hardcore electronics engineer looking to learn one of the most exciting developments in the field of microcontroller programming.
