Another comparison video on YouTube

Post by RogerClark » Sun Jan 21, 2018 10:44 pm

Guys,

I noticed this new video on YouTube for beginners which compares Arduino on the Blue Pill to an Arduino Nano.

He did a good job, but didn't seem to use the bootloader.



Note. The author has 700k subscribers !

Edit.

One other thing I keep noticing is that the LeafLabs docs get used a lot by people.
I don't know how long LeafLabs are likely to keep them online, but I don't simply want to copy them to the Wiki because of copyright.

I've tried contacting Leaflabs via GitHub but didnt have any success, so I've tried using their Contact page on their website, requesting permission to copy the files to github, and I'll see if they reply.

I've seen quite a few of his videos, I think he is on one of my Google+ subscriptions, or perhaps he is just a frequent "suggestion" from Youtube.

I suspect a lots of our new members were influenced by the video. The $2 and under pricing is a big draw for a 32-bit dev board.
The official Arduino Due is still over $37 from the Arduino store.

I love the fact that the world is discovering the blue pill, but like with all Open Source hardware & software projects, there is no revenue stream being created to ensure adequate support for new users. My statement "best effort" that I use often with newbies is somewhat shallow when their hopes are driven so high by YouTube videos.

and there is a 'hidden' power about stm32duino, it can do real usb that some simplier arduino can't
and the 'upgrade' stm32f407 can do math at 500mflops overclocked
:lol:

ye strange, why not bootloader, that can let you save away a USB-Serial adapter, pretty easy for beginner

I think the information about Arduino on the STM32 must be a lot more fragmented than we think.

Most people on this forum use the bootloader from the start, unless they already have a ST-Link or are using a Nucleo board etc
