Getting Started with the BBC Micro:Bit

by Book

Mike Tooley's book will show you how the micro:bit can be used in a wide range of applications from simpe domestic gadgets to more complex control systems such as those used for lighting, central heating and security applications.  Using Microsoft Code Blocks, the book provides a progressive introduction to coding as well as interfacing with sensors and transducers.

Each chapter concludes with a simple practical project that puts into practice what the reader has learned. The featured projects include an electronic direction finder, frost alarm, reaction tester, battery checker, thermostatic controller and a passive infrared security alarm.
