If you are looking to start programming or would like an exciting device to get young people interested in coding – then the BBC micro:bit v2 is perfect for you!

Created by the BBC working in partnership with other brands, the micro:bit is a small, programmable computer that has been designed to inspire children and young people to learn about programming and electronics in a practical and fun way.

Measuring just 4cm x 5cm, this single board computer has an impressive ARM Cortex m4 processor and 512KB of flash, making it a capable little device.

Software

Step 1: Connect It Connect the micro:bit to your computer via a micro USB cable. Macs, PCs, Chromebooks and Linux systems (including Raspberry Pi) are all supported. It comes with a fun application, give it a try! Your micro:bit will show up on your computer as a drive called ‘MICROBIT’. Watch out though, it’s not a normal USB disk! Step 2: Program It Using one of our fantastic editors, write your first micro:bit code. For example drag and drop some blocks and try your program on the Simulator in the Javascript Blocks Editor. Step 3: Download It Click the Download button in the editor. This will download a ‘hex’ file, which is a compact format of your program that your micro:bit can read. Once the hex file has downloaded, copy it to your micro:bit just like copying a file to a USB drive. On Windows you can right click and choose “Send To→MICROBIT.” Step 4: Play It The micro:bit will pause and the yellow LED on the back of the micro:bit will blink while your code is programmed. Once that’s finished the code will run automatically!The MICROBIT drive will automatically eject and come back each time you program it, but your hex file will be gone. The micro:bit can only receive hex files and won’t store anything else! What cool stuff will you create? Your micro:bit can respond to the buttons, light, motion, and temperature. It can even send messages wirelessly to other micro:bits using the ‘Radio’ feature. Check out the hardware page for more inspiration. Step 5: Master it This page shows you how to get started with micro:bit, but as well as JavaScript Blocks you can use Python and text-based JavaScript to program your micro:bit. Head over to the Let’s Code page to see the different languages, or check out the ideas page for some things you might like to try out.
