Started out programming in ANSI C back in the 80s.
The book starts off quite well with a hold-you-by-the-hand approach up until the second project.
Then there is just simply a lot of missing information, and the second project is simply way to complex for that point in the students progress.
Missing info like, instruction to program the device but without telling the student what file to download into the device.
The first project has you create a COF file, the second project never metions a COF file at all. (head scratching!!).
The first project is ultra simple, the second project is way over the newbee's head.
Perhaps he spent way too many pages in the book going way over-board on explanations of the code and then leaves the student hanging without critical information on critical practical steps.
Why take a student to the first step in the stair-way and then expect him/her to jump to the top from there.
I don't know if Joe still takes emails from customers...kind of wouldn't think so, since the book was published 10 years ago.
The butterfly is a nice package with lots of IO and an on-board LCD and Joy-stick which make it a wonderful platform for microprocessor projects.
Unfortunatly, there is little to no information on programming it.
I suspect the arduino and the raspberry pi have become the new hot devices.
Best wishes and a happy learning.
