I have a few MSP430F5438IPZR microcontrollers from texas instruments, and i was wondering how to program them. I've seen things like the ghetto programmer and was hoping that i could do something similar. yes i am new at microcontrollers, i have done nothing with them, but would like to start. any help would be appriciated.

EDIT: i would like to know how to connect it to the computer and then program it.
