Wonderful people of AVR!
I'm seeking some reassurances that things are going to be ok. My background is that I'm a new graduate in CS with experience mainly with Java. When discovering this new world of AVR I fell in love and have been on a daily quest to master it. Unfortunately, it's been a few months now and I'm starting to become discouraged at my progress. I miss the readily plug and play libraries that add lots of functions. I'm struggling with some TWI and SPI ideas along with PWM and timing subjects.
Please tell me that things will be ok and with a little more effort I'll have these concepts licked?
I'm tempted to go the mikroC for AVR route because of the libraries but don't know if that is the proper way to go.
I dedicate at least 2 ours a day, 7 days a week to reading, coding, testing. What else can I be doing to accelerate my learning? I have several development boards and have all the "tools" I need for success, now I just want to feel some success.
I'm living in Vienna Austria right now, but moving to the coast of Oregon in the USA. Any mentors out there?
