I get much enjoyment these days from messing about with the ole’ electronics kits I re-discovered in the basement. Programming these small micro-processors is a throwback to old times, when I did BASIC programming and it was always a lot of trial and error; no messages to help you out – same thing. So you try this and that, and there’s a lot of help from the community, and you try and contribute back… There’s a real sense of experimentation and joy and you’ll get that LED blinking and you know there’s a connection made… y’know, feels real.
