Welcome to the exciting world of building projects with BBC micro:bit! First, this chapter introduces the micro:bit and provides a shopping guide for micro:bit and its accessories, including starter kits and inventor's kits. Then you will learn how to power the micro:bit board using various powering options. The most interesting part of this chapter is when you write your first code for the micro:bit with the online Python editor, the Mu editor, and the JavaScript Blocks Editor. You will also learn how to flash a program to the micro:bit and run it. The latter part of the chapter introduces working with REPL (Read-Evaluate-Print-Loop) using the Mu editor to run code line-by-line without flashing the complete program to the micro:bit.
