Welcome, David. That's a whole lot of experience! Sounds like you're still working on software for hardware, if that makes sense. That's something I've always been interested in, but I think my current expertise (web development) is a far cry from your sort of programming.

Any thoughts/advice on how to learn more about "software for hardware?"


The Particle boards are nice to start with, plus have real C programming available. Microchip has some good get-to-know-us evaluation boards. Do you have any local groups that you can join?

I live in northern Wyoming, therefore unlikely to be local to wherever you are.

Yep, I'm in New York City, where I'm sure all sorts of groups exist.

Just did a quick look at the Particle boards; they look great. They seem similar to Raspberry Pi and Arduino, but there's probably some differences I don't know about.

Thanks for the advice!
