    Want To Learn Embedded Programming


    Hey,

    I am a software engineer who has mainly worked on non embedded applications. I want to get into embedded programming, but don't really know anything about it or how to get started.

    Anybody have any ideas where to begin? I'd like to buy something I can mess with at home.

    Any help?

    Buy an arduino, maybe an arduino starter kit from one of many sites selling them.

    Alternatively, go buy a PIC board.


    When you learn how to use those you can buy just the chip without the nice and easy boards attached, which are far cheaper.

    Use XXX in a comment to flag something that is bogus but works. Use FIXME to flag something that is bogus and broken. Use TODO to leave yourself reminders. Calling a program finished before all these points are checked off is lazy.
