'[PICLIST] How to program a pic ?'

Me and my classmates are buiding a hydroponic tank. We are using a pic 16F874. We are using a booklet called Pic n Easy programming. I guess it's supposed to be an easy programmind starter kit. If anybody knows anything this would be greatly appeciated. You can email at spam_OUTrsimpkins5TakeThisOuTspamhome.com
Thanks,

Reggie

What you are asking is kind of broad.  A suitable reply would be worthy of
publishing into a book itself:)

What you should do is do some research by reading Pic n Easy and searching
http://www.piclist.com and http://www.google.com for "PIC 16F874", and any other keywords
that describe what you are trying to learn at the moment.  Try programming a
small test program onto the PIC16F874 to get you familiar with the device
and tools. Maybe it would just toggle an output line on and off that you
could observe it with a scope or connecting an LED to it.

Then when you come across something that is giving you trouble and you
cannot resolve by a quick search of the archives, post a very specific
question here.

Hope this gets you on your way.  I just started doing embedded program a
couple months ago and I find it a lot of fun. (BTW, I got started by buying
this serial LCD at http://www.earthLCD.com called the PICL.  It has a 16F877 in it
that had a bootloader already burned into it so that I could easily write
programs on my Windows PC and download them to the 16F877 through a serial
port. IT was a great learning experience.)

Hi, even though the 16F874 is a 40 pin PIC
and the biggest package they make, it will
still only make a VERY SMALL hydroponic tank.

I know you can build anything with a PIC, but
maybe a better option would be to build the
hydroponic tank from a large plastic bucket
or container? ;o)

Hi Wolfgang, ok i'll justify it. :o)
There seems to be more and more young students
all asking how to use a pic to make a hydroponic
setup and asking very generalised questions.

Like "how do I make a hydroponics setup with
a PIC"????

I can only guess why EE students have an interest
in building a hydroponics setup(!) but each time
the generality of the question annoyed me.
I could understand someone asking "do you have code
for controlling a pump at regular timed intervals"
or "do you have code for a PIC to read a humidity
sensor" etc etc.

But the general "how do I make a hydroponics
tank with a PIC" deserved a funny reply I thought,
mainly because this same question has been asked a
lot recently in that same unusual manner.
No offense was meant to Reginald and his friends.
:o)

In view of the number of hydroponic set-ups found in houses with blacked out
windows or sealed up garages it is not hard to imagine a possible use :)

I once happened across a book that was devoted to greenhouse projects that
involved PICs. Since then I have not been able to locate the reference.
Does anyone know of this reference?

Parallax offers a course on their website on Earth Science,
designed to be used with the Stamp and their Board of
Education product. Mostly datalogging with the Stamp, but a
start in the right direction, and possibly easier for
youngsters....
