Hi my name is Jonathan Nethercott. I have been interested in electronics and programming for nearly 40 years – although I had to wait a few years to get my first computer (a commodore 64). I have a degree in Electronic Systems Engineering, and have been a professional software engineer for nearly 30 years. In that time I’ve worked on all sorts of embedded systems and applications, including desktop apps, web sites, and mobile apps.
I have been programming PICs in my spare time for many years, and have recently been looking at the new development systems. On this site I plan to share some of my experiences with you. I will be writing about Arduino, chipKIT, PICs programmed directly using the picKIT3, and anything else that I happen to use.
I’ll be trying all sorts of projects, using different bits of hardware to interface to. Hopefully you’ll find it interesting, and I look forward to getting some feedback from you too.
