Using Microsoft TouchDevelop to create Arduino sketches

For the Microsoft devotees who are also interested in the world of Arduino, you can now create Arduino sketches using the TouchDevelop software from Microsoft Research. This allows the user to create Arduino sketches using a simple web-based user-interface and then directly upload the code to the target board. 

Although to some people this may not seem to be an optimal method of programming an Arduino, it gives us more options which is always a good thing. Furthermore the user can also generate their own Windows apps and so forth. To get started, visit the TouchDevelop-Arduino tutorial page. And for more, we're on facebookGoogle+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.

If you're looking for an Arduino Uno-compatible board to embed into various projects, choose what tens of thousands of others have done and use our Freetronics Eleven - the Arduino-Uno compatible with low-profile USB socket, onboard prototyping space and easy to view LEDs:
