Picked up this board from someone, don't know anything about it. Anyone know where I might find some useful material for getting started with this thing?
Although you can probably get it running with the example software and while it is a decent kit, I'd recommend putting it on eBay or similar and get a board which has a larger support base, like an Arduino (or one of its various clones) or a PIC based board. Freescale do make nice processors, but they aren't wery much used among amateurs, so you're going to be doing most on your own.
And while you may use C, each processor core has lots of differences, so the code won't port as easy as some seems to think - it's not comparable to PC's running different OS.
