hello all, this is my first post on this website so i hope i don't sound to much like a noob.
heres a little background- i have always loved taking things apart and building things so when i started i didn't know where to go so i brought the parralax basic stamp 2 starter kit from radio shack. but when i looked to start a project i didn't know if i should learn a new language like C or stick with the overpriced basic stamp. well i wanna move to avr or pic but i want to program in basic until i get my mind around C. so my question is would it be easy to switch from Pbasic to just basic. are their any free compilers. and what uC should i get for basic.
