I’ve read about FreeRTOS and would like to try a small dev project to learn more. I am not a commercial
developer but experienced with electronics, breadboarding, and programming in C. I’ve built real-time systems with 8085’s in the past using the old Intel dev system and ICE but I’ve been doing other things for the past 25 yrs. I can use Eclipse.
I am happy to bootstrap my learning by duplicating some simple running system. The question is: which one is easiest to get going with?
In your view, what is the easiest, small scale hardware to implement from cold start? The Arduino Due is a Cortex-M3-based board. Would that be a useful place to start?
Could you point me to a recent step-by-step implementation documented on the web?
