Will there be a micro:bit forum?

Now that Parallax is carrying the micro:bit v2 (seems like the only US distributor with any stock), will it get a Forum Category?

    @brucee, sure, do you think it would be a productively-used forum?

  • While we're at it, come and buy some of these:

    To my knowledge, we are the only in-stock source in the country!

  • Wouldn't a forum make sense for people using microbits, and having bought them from you. I picked up one for double the normal price, before I saw Parallax carried them, but i get a couple more from your store.

    You can run microPython or Blockly with microbit tools.

    I'm using Msys2 on a PC (Arch linux) as well as various Linuxes on an old PC to compile C or C++ programs. Their documentation is still forming up, but I got some help from a friend who is programming them at a University in Brazil, as well as a couple pointers from people at the Lancaster University github.

    My intention is to port a BASIC to the board, the code is compiling and I need to hook up the loose ends.

  • 4 microbit v2's on order. Will have some friends doing some testing when I get BASIC running with BLE links.

  • Like?
