NEW PRODUCT – Getting Started with the micro:bit by Wolfram Donat


“Take a byte of the micro:bit!”

This book is for everyone! It’s for kids (and parents) who want to learn how to program their own simple games and gadgets using the BBC micro:bit. It’s also for serious hardware hobbyists who want an inexpensive microcontroller with a built-in LED display. Or for Internet of Things nerds who want an inexpensive, remote programmable Bluetooth node.

After whizzing through this very approachable book, you’ll learn:

  • How to program the micro:bit using Python, MakeCode / Javascript, and C++
  • How to connect your micro:bit to another device like a smart phone — or even another micro:bit
  • How advanced hardware makes the micro:bit work
  • How to write text using LEDs and read from the onboard accelerometer
  • How to connect the micro:bit to a motor controller and make a mini-bot!

Chapters include:

  1. Introduction to the micro:bit
  2. A Tour of the micro:bit
  3. Programming Using MicroPython
  4. Some Basic Projects
  5. The mbed Operating System
  6. Interfacing with the GPIO Pins
  7. Using Bluetooth
  8. Serial Bluetooth Communications and the micro:bit
  9. The Story of the micro:bit
  10. Other Programming Environments

You will have so much fun understanding micro:bit’s software and diving into coding and programming!
