COVERS micro:bit V.1, all of the information is still valid to the V.2 for the most part, with the exception of the new hardware additions (look for a 2nd edition coming up).

This book will teach you how to really harness the power of the micro:bit. You'll learn about sensors, Bluetooth communications, and embedded operating systems, and along the way you'll develop an understanding of the next big thing in computers: the Internet of Things.

With this book, you'll learn

  • About the advanced hardware that makes the micro:bit work
  • How to program the micro:bit using different languages, including Python, JavaScript, and C++
  • How to connect your micro:bit to another intelligent device like a smartphone — or even another micro:bit
  • How to write text using LEDs, and read from the onboard accelerometer
  • How to connect the micro:bit to a motor controller and make a simple mini bot
