    Are you also new to electronics? Some people want to learn both at the same time, and it is possible if you keep at it.

    I very much liked the "What's a Microcontroller?" package from the Parallax people. They make the Basic Stamp, a very easy to program device. It's a good learning tool plus they have lots of other kits just for beginners.

    Otherwise Microchip sells some development boards along with a programmer, and some lessons too. Microchip parts (PICs) are real microcontrollers (the Stamp uses one) and are used by professionals.

    Do you have a budget? Where in the world are you, can you get mail shipments?

    And welcome to the forums!
