Become a sponsor to MicroPython

MicroPython is a reimplementation of the Python programming language designed to run on microcontrollers and embedded systems. It is a liberally (MIT) licensed project used by a vast and diverse range of users all over the world, from hobbyists to education, research to industry. It is used in many commercial products and by entities such as the European Space Agency, Lego, Adafruit, the BBC micro:bit, and many others.

The MicroPython organisation's main objectives are to maintain the software - fix bugs and add features. But it also has a role in fostering the community through the forum, meetups and at conferences (eg PyCon).

The core values are integrity, excellence and to maintain the philosophy of MicroPython, to ensure the software is of very high quality and robust so it can be relied upon in real embedded products that last 10+ years. We also value community input, bug reports, pull requests and discussion to guide the software in the right direction.

Sponsorship is key to maintaining the long-term health of the project, and funds will go towards:

  • continued maintenance of the software;
  • recruiting additional maintainers for things like GitHub issue/PR triage and review;
  • funding purchase of development boards for new platforms and other test equipment for maintainers and other contributors;
  • offering bounties for finding and fixing critical bugs, and for improving test coverage;
  • investigating opportunities for paid development and paid documentation improvements.

If you use and rely on MicroPython then please consider becoming a sponsor! If none of the available tiers of sponsorship suit you then contact us directly for more options.
