Microprocessors for Newbees

Postby charlessenf » Tue Dec 10, 2013 5:01 pm

I went to Radio Shack last week and, after looking at the small Make Section asked several questions similar to "What does this do?" and "What do you need a shield for?" Then, finally "Is there a group of folks that work with these things that might be able to answer such questions definitively and possibly help me get started?"

Long story short, the answer turned out to be The Foothills Community Workshop - though no one there knew it by that name!

At any rate, it appeared that a fellow could spend a hundred dollars or more on various bits and pieces and books only to find out 'this isn't for me!' Not due to any deficiency in the hardware necessarily, but in his lack of understanding and the like.

Back when I was in college, our programming classes and labs were great because a dozen of us would be working on learning code and techniques simultaneously and would interact and help one another grasp a concept or coding structure (often moments after we had 'got it').

Reading some of the posts on Microprocessors here, it appears that there are several advanced practitioners able to include a variety of sensors and servo motors and such into projects controlled with one of these cheap microprocessors.

My thought was that a space where the object was one or three of the most basic projects would form the agenda and attended by as many of those further 'down the road' as might be enticed into sharing would serve as a great exercise for those who have lingered at that little microprocessor display at the shack debating the entrance cost, utility, potential for success, etc. and deciding to put it off for another month or so.

I also noticed that 26 of the 46 members don't seem to post much; seventeen never posted five but once; four but twice with thirty having fewer that five posts to their credit. I wonder how we might re-engage those who stopped by, registered and then seemed to have lost interest.

See you at the open house.

Charles, if you would like to become a member of FCW we just had five Teensy3.0 boards donated to us from the manufacturer. It's a very small powerful board that could be used for many projects. It uses the Arduino IDE. If we can produce five projects and document them on our website the manufacturer will give us another five boards.

Is anyone else interested in an Overview of Microcontrollers (could include the Arduino/AVR, PIC, Picaxe, Propeller, or ARM)? It sounds like Charles is interested in what they do, what the differences are, selection, and what is required to get started. At that point, then classes could be created for those of interest. We can set up whatever is needed.
The only thing impossible is that which we do not attempt.

If we took my little project Or one of his) as a focus, would that provide the opportunity to explore the possibilities of the
AT-tiny, pic12, or Picaxe
? I'm one of the forty-seven percent so disposable income is something I've read about in the literature but don't posess in sufficient quantities to squander SSI checks. I have another project idea and was advised that a digispark would do for it - via an email dialogue on Electronics Learning Group YahooGroup.

And, yet another project involving the use of the parts from an electronic (human-weight measurement) scale that would require collecting and sending the results wire-less(ly) to a database app. But, if I can get the cage release done and a working prototype, I may be on my way to that elusive disposable income.

As I do NOT collect my NetZero email as frequently as I did when I first signed up her, it is faster to respond to charlessenf@gmail.com (If you will) until I can change the email here.
