Zerynth is the first vertical set of tools for designing embedded applications and IoT connected devices using any 32-bit microcontroller and cloud architecture. All in Python (or C/Python) language!

Zerynth provides the middleware for smart devices and solutions for the Internet of Things and Industry 4.0. In other words, the “Android for the embedded world” , applicable to manufacturing, retail, robotics, home automation and all the market sectors where the IoT (and YOU) will be the protagonist.

Zerynth launched a really, really interesting contest. Here are the prizes, then if you are still on this page after them (we suspect you’ll open Zerynth Studio in a moment), you can find the rules and advices to join the contest!

  • Participation Prize: first of all, Zerynth and our partner Open-Electronics want to thank every participant giving a 10% discount on the Open-Electronics store. When your project will be accepted we’ll send you a message with the promotion code.
  • Zerynth’s Choice Prize: we will award the best project with the fantastic Hexiwear by MikroElektronika and NXP!
  • Community Prizes: the 3 most voted projects will win great prizes provided by Open-Electronics and MikroElektronika. In particular: 1 Flip&Click with Zerynth Virtual Machine + 1 Click board OR 2 Click boards already compatible with Zerynth (LoRa, WiFi Plus, Bargraph, Temp&Hum, I2C 1 Wire, ThumbstickREED, DC MOTOR, Vibra senseIR Distance, microSD, RELAY, Motion)
  • Bonus Prize: winners also have the possibility to be interviewed and featured on the Zerynth, Open Electronics or MikroElektronika blog!
