Do you want to prove you’re the best Python developer around? Join the Codemotion online coding challenge sponsored by Zerynth and XinaBox.

In recent years, we’ve all seen how powerful and versatile Python is. And let’s not forget how easy it is to use. That is why we want to give Python enthusiasts around the world a chance to start using it in the IoT and embedded field. Considering that Zerynth is sponsoring this coding challenge, the first prize is a Zerynth powered XinaBox development kit. We couldn’t be more happy to sponsor this coding challenge and to open doors for IoT development in Python to a wider audience.

Here’s one hint, before the challenge starts: both Python 2 and Python 3 can be used to solve the problem.

The real question is – are you the best IoT Python developer out there?

You can sign up for the challenge here.

Win the XK13 IoT Plus Kit

If you need a bit more encouraging, if you happen to win the challenge, the first prize is the new XinaBox XK13 IoT Plus Kit. A Zerynth-powered kit designed to drastically cut down your development time. Since the Zerynth license is already on board, you can start programming right out of the box!

XinaBox XK13 Python Zerynth imageThe second prize is the Xinabox XK03 development kit,  Raspberry Pi 3b+ included. As you can see, the XK03 is a Raspberry Pi development kit, with XinaBox’s modular sensors for weather, hand gestures, proximity, acceleration/movement, volatile and organic gases, as well as capacitive touch.

The third prize is a ticket for the Codemotion Conference (in Berlin or Madrid or Milan).

Get Started with Zerynth and XinaBox

We don’t want to leave you unprepared though, so we wanted to remind you of that there are tons of articles on how to get started with Zerynth and XinaBox.

The first one, of course, is called “Getting Started with Zerynth and XinaBox.” You’ll learn about the XinaBox CW02 board (ESP-32 based) and how to activate the Zerynth license on board it. You’ll also learn how to connect and virtualize it.

You could also learn how to make a Remote Gesture and Proximity Sensing device with Zerynth and XinaBox. Or a Python programmable weather station.
