Book and Micropython Updates

02 June 2023

Even more updates on the Book and MicroPython stuff

Well, first about the book. As of 3am CDT this morning, Amazon was reporting the following stats to my latest book…

Best Sellers Rank: #461,869 in Books (See Top 100 in Books)

#104 in Software Design Tools

#287 in Computer Programming Languages

#505 in Python Programming

I think that’s pretty darn good for a book that’s been available for less than a week.

MicroPython Update…

The I2C issue seems to be fairly working as long as you stick to the new default pins. For I2C(0), use GPIO 4 for SDA and GPIO 5 for SCL.

For I2C(1), use GPIO 6 for SDA and GPIO 7 for SCL

This is supposedly was a request from the RPi foundation.

Motor and PWM

Yes, by adding the freq to the pin definitions or shortly after that, things should work correctly and as before.


No information has changed as far as I can tell.

Other Random Things…

I’ve been thinking about reworking the website here. It served (and still is serving) it’s purpose, but I think it’s about time to give it a face lift. There is not time frame as to when this might happen.

PAGE 8.0

Don is working VERY hard on updating PAGE from 7.6 to 8.0. I’m working equally hard to break it as quickly as he brings out fixes. It IS coming, but right now I can’t tell you just how soon. It will have some FANTASTIC updates.

Until next time, be safe.
