Thank you to everyone who has contributed to Python, MicroPython, and CircuitPython.

Thank you to Michael Kennedy and Brian Okken of the Python Bytes podcast for answering my many questions when starting out. A second thank you to Brian Okken whose podcast interview prep I have shamelessly stolen (with his permission, of course).

Lastly, thank you for listening. Stay positive!
