So, I have been wanting to learn embedded development for years, and this year I decided to do so, wasn't very happy with the whole proprietary experience of Microchip and ended up following the advice of a good friend and look into the stm32 boards.
Bought one and installed their free and open-source IDE, been following a course in Udemy for embedded development and I am astonished by how powerful and easy the tools are! #foss #stm32 #embedded 1/n
On this video, its me using STM32CubeIDE, connected directly to the board vis USB in debug mode, manipulating -directly- the register on the board that controls the green led to turn it off and on 🤯. Might not seem much from the video, but just taking in the fact that you can manipulate the CPU and its peripherals directly like that is something that amazes me.
