I created a page in the wiki to capture recommended PIC programming books and guides. If you have found something you like please add it to the page for other to reference in the future.

Microchip PIC References (http://doityourselfchristmas.com/wiki/index.php?title=Microchip_PIC_References) DIYC Wiki Page

It would be better to attach your video to the Renard specific stuff since that is what it is about. My intent with the wiki page is to branch out to learning beyond a specific design, not a specific HowTo. Learning the language that drives the PIC as to be better able to tweak future designs.

Hi Matt,

Looks good.

One question: How about adding in a recommended hardware (programmer)

Thanks

Rick R.

The programmer is independent of learning how to read / write PIC ASM code.

Hardware programmers are like the DIY Christmas controllers. Everyone has a different requirement so there isn't just one to recommend and there are lots of variations of the same thing depending on $$ and functionality.

On the forum in the tools and equipment (http://www.doityourselfchristmas.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=49) section you will find lots of discussion on that subject.

Okay, I am stumped. I remember someone (Maybe mudsculpter) made a tutorial/guide/how to (commplete with pictures and screen captures) on using the PICKit 2 programmer. I thought it was on the WIKI or the how-to section but I cannot find it. I have found the tutorials on the wiki referenced on this thread, but those are not the ones I remember seeing. Can anyone help me locate it (or even remember it?)?

Thanks,
Steve

No, thats pretty good though. This one was like a word document or a pdf and it litterally walked you through the steps for programming. I saw it and knew I really needed to bookmark it - so of course I didn't:mad:

I'm thinking I am going to buy the PICKit 2 from mouser and the PIC Cradle that Macrosil recommended in a few of these posts scattered around the forum. I was hoping to see that document again so I could look at one more time, read it, AND bookmark it - alas no such luck yet.

Anybody else remember what I am talking about or was it a dream?

That's it. Thanks RL. Are you the one who originally posted it? Mudsculpter-Raving Lunatic, these names are so similar. We need to pick unique names - something like "John Smith" that way we wont get so easily confused:D.

Did you make it? Anyway, that is the one I wanted. I appreciate your help.

No, I didn't create it.

I just have a habit of d/l everything that I think I might find usefull. The only problem is sometimes locating it when I need it. :wink:

Glad it helped you out.

Tech, Thanks for finding the source. I looked high and low for that document and couldn't find it. Never occured to me it was in Bill's Journey.

Bill,
Awesome document, thanks for posting it.
