Mesh network study group is formed, using LoPy
I've put together a study group to work on a mesh network using LoPy.
We are looking for people to help us put together an open source project, using LoRa as a text communication system, on a mesh type network.
Right now, we are working on a Proof of concept to prove the following things. Point to point encrypted text communication. Discovery of other devices out there, like "Hey, I'm here, who else is out there". And of course security, encryption and authentication.

hi @jdcrunchman, we open-sourced the openthread (small) port to Lora (still not 100% features suported).
More interesting, you can already use all mesh commands from https://github.com/openthread/openthread/blob/master/src/cli/README.md
So, you can start already with UDP sockets.
I take this opportunity, to invite Mesh enthusiastics (firmware and networking engineers) to even join Pycom (some formal JD will follow), as we have good plans to open Mesh to masses.
<later edit>: If interested, just drop me an email on email@example.com
@jdcrunchman Has anyone yet written Mesh network Python code for LoPy? Or are we the first? If so, then we are looking for talent or those experienced in writing Mesh network code. Our main goal is to write proof of concept code. For instance, send a signal out there saying "Who's out there", and listening for someone to answer.
