New to programming.
« on: March 16, 2008, 10:48:27 AM »
Hi guys, I'm completely new to MCU programming and I wondered if anyone could give me a hand in choosing the best make, software ect to learn from.

Thanks  :)

remember this the more u do research , the more u learn for the time being u dont have to be concerned .. take a look at 50$ tutorial and download the code and header files

the admin has really made easy for beginners like u to write code for the microcontrollers so try learning from the 50$ robot and also the tutorials

Get a book that specifically teaches MCU programming. It would be a simple google search for "C programming robot book"

i guess finding such a book will be hard as all mcu's have a different way of coding

ill suggest try downloading the datasheet of the mcu and then try learning abt the registers used in the mcu and then start manupulating them to get desired result

C is C no matter where you go.

It all depends on the compiler, you have to specify what MCU to build for.

You can compile for windows, unix, mac, atmegas, whatever...just need to find the right compiler

i always think its better for a true beginner to start with assembly as it make you understand hardware
,dont waste much time in assembly but you should know it,
then move to a highlevel language
then learn higher level ones ;D
