I always was interested in creating things.
However, I never got any further than programming in HTML0. Basic HTML without CSS.
I have some background theory in CSS, but never really made anything worth while.
I did not find any flair in the advanced coding with libraries and stuff.
Wanted something simpler.
Something totally basic, to the core.
Minimalist in approach.
The Arduino Boy might actually achieve this, due to it’s screen limitation (monochrome, minimal pixels), this limits what you can program into it, and it somehow has a flair. The small, low profile processor, with low power consumption, the screen (Would love to see this with a reflective screen instead, for even lower consumption)…
There’s an art in making programs as small as possible.
It’ll require ingenuity, and ways to circumvent limitations.
Kind of like the 4k demos we had back in the day on our PCs.
I find attraction to this device, and wondered, would it be rewarding, if I could spend my time learning to code for ArduinoBoy?
Meaning, I don’t really have any special coding skills, but if I had to learn a language, would learning this be easy (quick rewarding), or would you say to rather start with something else?
Also, is there an emulator for Windows I can practice with?
