SIMPL is as SIMPL does


Notice how, with a trivial example, I've been able to create a SIMPL application with a mixture of programming languages (C, Python) and run the same sender module against a local receiver and against a remote receiver in the cloud, without changing a line of Python code to do so. In fact, nothing whatsoever in the Python code is associated with any TCP/IP networking. The SIMPL toolkit and its associated surrogates looked after all this for me.

This is the kind of power the SIMPL toolkit can bring to your Raspberry Pi projects.
