Hi - being very new to all of this, and primarily interested in programming (in Python specifically) as opposed to electronics I was wondering which of those would be the best investment in that context?
… for a start I am not sure what type of projects one would be used over the other, typically, coming from a non-inexistent experience with outboards, so examples would probably help me answer that question.
also, I see that the Propeller Hat description emphasises that it ships with a dedicated IDE, and language - but reading betweeen the lines there seems nothing particularly difficult to control it using Python (libs provided)?
anyway, I guess I’m not looking to make big projects on breadboards, control motors, except for purposes of learning the basic principles of it, so I’m leaning towards an Explorer.
second (related) question, if I settle on an Explorer, would the pro version provide me with that many more options to experiment witn a variety of components? … researching this briefly it seems the analog inputs open up an interesting selection I haven’t thought of (Photoresistors to name but one), and obviously servo motor controlling?
I Guess, I’m looking primarily for a sketchpad to put my Python skills (or lack thereof currently) as I found learning much more fun that way than say computation or graphical interface fiddling…
Thanks in advance for any pointers and guided advises you may be able to provide.
