Imaginative experiments that teach PIC MCU programming — while providing hours of learning fun!
"Smart" house features and "smart" appliances, are just some of the multitude of inexpensive PIC micontroller projects created by PIC expert Myke Predko.
More than just hours of fun, these exciting experiments provide a solid grounding in PIC microcontrollers and the skills needed to program them — from the ground up. Each experiment builds on those before it, so you develop a hands-on, practical understanding of microcontroller programming. You don't need any knowledge of programming to get started. But by the end, you'll be able to complete your own awesome projects!
