Choosing a Development Platform

With all the development platforms on the market, it can be difficult to pick between different MCUs or SBCs. In each of these guides, you’ll be able to get a comprehensive breakdown of the most popular options in each category, their features and what they’re best used for!

Grove – An Easier Way to Learn Hardware

For a complete list of electronics development tools, be sure to check out our Electronics Workbench Essentials article!

On the other hand, you might know now that we’re a strong advocate of our Grove ecosystem. Grove is a modular and standardised connector prototyping system that takes a building block approach to assembling electronics. By eliminating the need for jumper wires or solder, you can get straight into hardware prototyping and programming without the hassles that plague traditional methods.

We’ve also developed a comprehensive Grove Beginner Kit for Arduino to make it even easier to learn electronics and programming without the fuss of complicated wiring. Learn about how this kit enables electronics learning and more in our resource roundup!

There are over 300 Grove modules available for a variety of purposes, including sensors, actuators, display and communication modules, all of which you can find here. No matter the project you are working on, there will definitely be a Grove module for you. Alternatively, check out the following selection guides to pick the best Grove module for your use case!

Software: Programming

In this section, you’ll find resources related to software, including how to get started with popular programming languages like Python (MicroPython) and C++ (Arduino), the popular Linux Operating System, and more programming and project tutorials!
