Free workbook

MicroPython on the micro:bit in 60 minutes

You'll learn how to show happy faces, read buttons, float and sink a ship, and do even more with this amazing £11 computer.

Use the workbook for self-study, or run a workshop for others. The workbook is free to get, free to use and free to share.

Have fun and let me know how you get on!

You can download the current version of the workbook from the link lower down this page.

However, I recommend that you sign up for the workbook using the form just below.

Top 3 reasons to sign up:

  1. Whenever I publish an update you'll get a reminder to download it (still free, of course)
  2. You'll get details of how to join the closed Facebook support group, and
  3. You will be the first to hear about future workbooks, workshops and courses

There are are two new workbooks in the pipeline: The Python Companion to the Inventors Kit, and micro:bit and chips, a guide to interfacing with other hardware using I2C, SPI and Serial Communications.

If you'd rather not share your email, that's fine

I won't be able to email you about updates or new workbooks, but you can download the current version of the workbook here.

Want me to run a workshop?

I regularly run 60-minute workshops based on the workbook. I charge nothing within the London Area. Outside the M25 I charge reasonable expenses. If you're involved in a group that might like me to run one, contact me via email or twitter.
