Pete and I create, develop and publish the Picprojects on this web
site. I work in the IT Industry and have always had an
interest in digital and micro electronics. The PIC
microcontrollers are a hobby for me; I originally set the website up to share my
experiments and projects with
like minded individuals and as far as practical that is still the
ethos behind it.
As a kid
I was really interested in electronics and the early home computers;
the ones you built yourself. There was no Internet and I spent
many hours poring over books and electronic magazines teaching
myself. What I would have given for access to the Internet back then.
website is here for all those people today who were like me back in
the day; hungry for knowledge, keen to learn and enjoy building
things and experimenting themselves. I started selling kits of
parts to make these projects more accessible to those with the
enthusiasm but not the resources. As of April 2016 I have
stopped selling the kits. I think times have moved on with the
advent of cheap systems based an Arduino and RaspberryPi as well as
other platforms and cheap ready made modules. Interest in PIC
microcontroller based projects has fallen and my kits sales had
dropped off to the extent it was not viable to continue selling them
once stocks had been run down.
love working with the PIC and I think it is a great device for many
applications. I have put
many hours of work in to the projects and website so I hope you find
something here that is helpful to you and excites you into learning
