View Full Version : New to SPIN

09-07-2007, 09:32 AM
I would like to move on from using the picaxe to the propellor. My main stumbling block is progtramming. I am ok with basic and VB.Net.
Very nervious about how to quickly come to terms with SPIN.

Are there some books or tutorials on spin ?

Yes, there are. Have a look at this page: http://www.parallax.com/propeller/downloads.asp
You'll find the Propeller Manual there (also reachable via your IDE->Help menu entry). There are also docs in the Propeller Education section and AppNotes section. For good examples, have a look at the Object Exchange site: http://obex.parallax.com
SPIN is not a hard language to learn, especially if you already know VB and normal basic.

Read through/do the PEK (Propeller Education Kit) labs, at least the first few to get the basics. Printing and having the quick reference guide at hand also helps to learn.

I'm new to the propeller!

I second bulkheads suggestion... the PEK labs create the easiest path. The User Manual is far more meaningful and helpful once you have gone through the labs.
