#Tutorial: Installing dependencies on MicroPython

Here is possible to find some MicroPython packages. On the WeMos or the ESP8266, it is possible to install these packages using the upip package manager. The WiPy doesn't have the package.

#Tutorial: Getting started with Android Things


As the title says, this is a getting started with Android Things. It should be my first post, but, it's better now than never. I'm posting this to summarize the steps to install Android Things on your Raspberry Pi.

Google announced Android Things on December of 2016. It's a modified version of the Android that we all know, but for Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The architecture of the SDK is described in the following figure:

As you can see, the core Android framework (the level below the Apps) is extended with additional APIs provided by the 'Things Support Library' (in orange). These APIs enable the integration of the apps with the new IoT devices.
