Thanks so much......this is what I need as a complete noob in microcontrollers
Are you sure? yes | no
It's my very great pleasure -- have you seen Part 2 yet? https://hackaday.io/page/7190-electronics-microcontrollers-for-absolute-beginners-part-2
Thanks so much for your comment. Like you, I started with small 6 V incandescent bulbs and batteries and switches. There was an electronics surplus store a bus ride away, and they had things like relays that were fun to play with. When I was about 13 my parents took out subscriptions to a couple of electronics hobbyist magazines for me and I used to build the little projects like oscillators that only had a few components and didn't cost much to build. Now I love building projects with the Arduino and similar processors -- I'm currently working on a 12 x 12 array of ping pong balls where each one has a tricolor LED inside.
I really appreciate your support on this. Also, I'm going to take a look at your M10CUBE -- it will take a few columns before I get to microcontrollers -- I can't wait to start explaining how they work :-)
I wishe English to be native language to express my felling on your Cool Beans Blog.
That is a mixture of technology and "humanity" if I may say. That been said I strongly believe that
Microcontrollers for Absolute Beginners will be something fresh and good to go along with it. Through the years I have many kids around me trying to teach them Electronics from books and notes around the globe and I always saying that I must write notes myself because of all the details you mentioned that confuse young school kids to jump start electronics. Back when 10 years old I was used to light bulbs with batteries and put small motors to boats every summer (may be that it why I studied electronics then) so I am very pleased with your series in Microcontrollers.That is why I started M10CUBE. In the memory of all these electronic kits we have been using as kids.In a hope that will be professional Microcontroller kit for learning that will expand to infinity without having everything laying around your table or then get the bloody thing and use it in your home or your greenhouse or....whatever.I even thinking of having one M10 module or more for breadboarding. People may inspired by
Microcontrollers for Absolute Beginners and use M10CUBE as a companion kit for learning Electronics. Who knows.One book that may be similar but not in the spirit you are beginning is "Learn Electronics With Arduino - APRESS, Don Whilchere". You may get some inspiration of what others did so you can make it better.
Good luck my friend and thumbs up to Microcontrollers for Absolute Beginners
