Just to start, I've never used a pic before, but I need to learn how to use it for a certain project that I'm doing. So I really need to start at the beginning, so anyone have any good projects/resources they can share that can be a good starting point in learning pic?
Something that is basic, but shows what you can possibly do with them.
Hi, This is real nice into to microcontrollers:
To write and download you'll need a program. Download this:
http://www.mikroe.com/mikroc/pic/ The free version is about 1/4 the way done the page on the right.
You'll also need hardware programmer. You can build one or buy one, I us the PICKIT 2 from MicroChip.
Get back to meet and I'll help where ever I can. I give lessons on Electronics, Robotics & microcontrollers to high schoolers, so I can help you alot.
