Robotics Talk at Pycon

Very chuffed to be able to present a talk at Pycon 2013 tomorrow. The title is Python for Robotics and Hardware Control and I sure hope folks find it valuable.

Here are the slides:

I got super fancy and wrote a little demo code for asynchronously talking between an Arduino and a Python process. It uses a thread to continuously poll the Arduino over the serial line (via the USB connection) to see if any events happen. It uses an interlock so you can send data to the Arduino at any time for full asynchronicity. Here's the code:, please share and enjoy! You'll need pySerial, download it from SourceForge at the link.
