Is anybody interested in a basic microcontroller class that doesn’t involve Arduino?
Arduino certainly has its merits, but I’d be stoked to preach on how great Platformio is, and show people how to migrate to it. With a cool project, of course.
Material cost for what I have in mind is about $20 and includes an STM32F1 Arm Cortex M3 (read: super powerful, coming from the AVR lines, and super cheap for when you need to buy more). And some other stuff.
Thinking of making it $25ish for members and $40ish for non-members, and encouraging people to sign up for VHS immediately to save on cash.
Possibly next week, but that’s a short timeline. Thursday the 16th, maybe?
I’d require people to install VSCode with Platformio beforehand (I think it’s cross platform) and no strong programming abilities required. Some basic ones would be helpful.
