My BBC Micro from 1980's

Growing up in the UK in the eighties, of course I own the original BBC Micro . While I am a big fan of the RaspberryPi, the BBC Micro:bit is a more cost effective device for DIY / Maker / and Education.

 

For anyone looking into getting started with it, here are some resources:

Code with mu

Currently this is my favorite IDE for programming the micro:bit. The mu editor runs everywhere, fast, and support downloading program to the micro:bit.

Thonny Python IDE

The Thonny IDE not only is a good python IDE, it supports the micro:bit out of the box.
