PIC Microcontrollers Programming | E-Book
You will need a few components to get all the examples up and running. All of these are covered in Chapter 1. I know of individuals who build microcontroller circuits in a simulation. I recommend building the actual circuits to gain hands-on experience that will help you in the industry. Unlike other programming disciplines, embedded systems development allows you to build things that can be used in our physical world, not just push pixels around the screen. I have also found it more enjoyable to prototype circuits, as you also learn valuable skills in circuit design and troubleshooting that you will have for a lifetime. Although for many people using a development board is simpler, for those wanting a true “hands-on” approach to learning, prototyping on breadboards is a valuable skill.
