PYTHONPYTHON has been and is still in development to allow programming of microcontrollers in a Python compatible language. The opportunity to use the Python language allows to give continuity, in a hypothetical educational path, towards the use of more complex systems such as microcomputers able to host GNU / Linux, like the Raspberry Pi series.
MICROSOFT BLOCK EDITORis a visual editor very similar to Scratch and represents the starting point for those who want to start programming. Like Scratch it is very simple to use but it is not a toy. Allows to
to deepen structured programming and event management. The method of composition of a program consists in choosing the blocks that represent the instructions, dragging them into the panel of the editor, configuring them in the customizable parts and "fitting" them correctly.
MICROSOFT TOUCH DEVELOPwas developed to implement the micro: bit programs using tablets or other devices with touch screens. Obviously it can also be used from normal PCs using the keyboard and mouse.
micro:bit technical specifications
25 red LEDs that can be lit with different intensities to create drawings, animations and games.
Two buttons that can be managed via program to customize the behavior of the same.
A reset and restart button.
An accelerometer able to detect and recognize different types of movement such as shaking, rotations and free fall. Useful for making a motion sensor or animated games.
An electronic compass able to detect orientation and rotation in degrees with respect to the North. An additional use could be the use as a metal detector (magnetic).
A USB connector to connect the micro: bit to the PC to load software programs.
One connector for external power supply.
One Bluetooth module Smart Technology that allows to connect the micro:bit with others devices equipped with the same technology as other micro-bits, PCs, smartphones, Bluetooth kits, tablets and cameras.
A temperature sensor able to detect the environment temperature .
A connector with 24 pins of which five with pads suitable for being connected with crocodile clips. The connector provides analog and digital I / O, communication bus and other features described in more detail below.
