OK, I have read the "Newbie? Start here" sticky and feel very worried now that I am about to be shot down in flames as this could be in the wrong forum or a stupid question, so I will apologise now if I have. :oops:
Anyway, I have been playing around with PICs for a while and they never seem to be powerful enough, most projects seem to be using the AVR these days (well for the more interesting projects anyway!). I want to learn C for it and from the newbie post I was thinking of the Absolute Beginners Guide to C for my C training and also getting the XGS AVR Dev station, although have considered building my own board which may fit my own dev needs better.
Am I heading in the right direction before I part with any hard earned cash?
