Today has arrived a nice hardware kit I ordered yesterday, it is a SunFounder kit purchased on Amazon, inside the kit there is everything you need to start fiddling with the Raspberry Pi Pico, included this tiny micro-controller.
The kit is quite big, there are a large amount of components, but what made me decide definitively to purchase this beaty was the fact that this micro-controller can be programmed with MicroPython, a kind of special Python verision created for micro controllers.
I had ventured into this territory a few years ago with an Arduino Mega board, and for a while I also had a lot of fun, but the fact that I could program it only and exclusively in C (a language I don’t particularly love), made me lock up all components in one drawer 😀
Now, with MicroPython, the situation has changed a lot and I already have a nice little project in mind that (if it works as I hope) I will publish here on the site 🙂
Now I’m going to unwrap all the packets with the components because I’m too excited 😛
