I would like to start programming but there are so many types it seems I don't which one to choose. Any suggestions? Answered
First I wish to thank everyone for their comments. Secondly I should apologize for not being a little more specific in my needs.
I have had some experience, back in the two floppy pc/commadore days, with basic programming. I wrote database and spreadsheet program with it.
My immediate needs are more for programming chips to use on small robotic projects. There seems to be several out there to do this. I just thought if I were going to have to learn one it should be one that would take me from -move back and forth - to more complicated programs to allow more autonomous movement as well as other functions.
I just didn't want spend the money on arduino when maybe basic stamp? or whatever is where I should be.
