Starting 2022 from the Basics
Nice read. My first "Hello World" was a blinking LED on a Radio Shack 30-in-1 kit around 1985! I was hooked for life. These days a "Hello, World!" in a new programming language doesn't do anything for me. The thrill comes instead when I get a correctly working conditional. THEN I get excited :D
My programming cherry was popped by a Commie 64, but I shared the thrill ;)
Happy New Year Ned.
I just finished one of those recently. As a learning exercise I did the blinking LED on a Raspberry Pi Pico in ARM assembler. 50 lines of code, most of which are assembler directives, equates, or comments. The main loop is nine lines, six of which have to do with the delay.
