On Thursday 25th of April we welcome back our very own Pete Gallagher of PJG Creations to talk to us about the BBC Micro:Bit.

This diminutive device may be affordable and have the perception of being aimed at children... But we'll spend the evening changing your mind!

We'll start by introducing the basics of the Micro:Bit including how to create our first program.

Next we'll move on to how to use the built in sensors and I/O.

Once we've got that sorted, we can start looking at the Radio and Serial Communications.

Finally we'll cover more advanced topics including how to extend the Micro:Bit's capabilities with our own Extensions.
