Python is a high-level and general-purpose programming language that has been widely used by programmers in many different fields. From a recent PyCon, we have learned that the Python programming language has been effectively applied in Agriculture, High Energy Physics, and more. In this video, we will discover how Python is being applied in another field of science. Maria Jose Molina-Contreras will show us how to build an innovative and intelligent “indoor garden” with the help of Python, no Windows UI toolkit required.
It seems like most people around the world are becoming more interested in living a long and healthy life. According to studies, growing house plants can actually improve health. This is where the concept of the intelligent indoor garden came from. In this video, Maria will discuss and will walk us through the process of how to build a functional and beginner-friendly system that will keep your plants alive using different sensors, microcontrollers, and CircuitPython. She will demonstrate how the system works from creating a web application with Flask to how CircuitPython works. Feel free to watch the video below and see how it can help you build your own intelligent indoor garden at home.
