Ned Konz has been doing embedded systems firmware and hardware development for over 40 years. He was the technical reviewer for Packt Publishing’s recent "Mastering Embedded Linux Programming - Third Edition", and has designed embedded systems for consumer, industrial and medical clients. His interest in dynamic languages for microcontrollers grew while he was working on the Squeak Smalltalk platform while working for Alan Kay. His latest projects that use MicroPython include a smart toothbrush system that will be available Q4 2024 and an add-on for vintage Fluke multimeters that provides a continuity measurement beeper function.
