Codemotion Python challenge is done – meet the winners
The Codemotion Python challenge has ended, and we’re happy to tell you that we’ll share the names of the talented winners.
Now, you’re probably wondering what the won. After all, winning this challenge was no easy task, so the prizes have to be good.
We think they are, and hopefully, you agree.
Meet the winners
The first place was won by Matteo Boscariol, and he has won the Zerynth powered XinaBox XK13 IoT Plus Kit that includes some of the most popular xChips. It’s a perfect combination of modular electronics and Python.
The CW02 xChip from the kit has a Zerynth license on board. All one has to do, to activate the license, is to copy the voucher code that is provided.
We hope that Matteo will make some great projects with the kit!
The second prize went to Gaspare Ferraro, who has won the Xinabox XK03 development kit, along with a Raspberry Pi 3b+. It’s a great toolset for transforming your Raspberry Pi with XinaBox’s modular sensors for weather, hand gestures, proximity, acceleration, and more. And when you’re done prototyping with Raspberry Pi and you want to use a microcontroller for the production phase, you can easily port the Python code with Zerynth. Take a look here for more info.
The third prize was won by José Luis Corcuera who got a ticket for the Codemotion Conference in Berlin.
