Usa el micro:bit en 5 pasos sencillos

Paso 1: Conéctalo

Conecta el micro:bit al computador mediante un cable micro USB (¿Usas un teléfono on tableta? Haz clic acá para descubrir como programar el micro:bit desde un dispositivo móvil). Macs, PCs, Chromebooks and Linux systems (incluso Raspberry Pi) son todos soportados. Incluye una divertida aplicación, pruébala!

Tu micro:bit se mostrará en tu computador como una unidad llamada 'MICROBIT'. Pero ten cuidado, no es un disco USB cualquiera!

Paso 2: Prográmalo

Usando uno de nuestros magníficos editores, escribe tu primer código micro:bit. For example drag and drop some blocks and try your program on the Simulator in the MakeCode Editor, like in the image below that shows how to program a Flashing Heart.

Paso 3: Descárgalo

Click the Download button in the editor. This will download a 'hex' file, which is a compact format of your program that your micro:bit can read. Once the hex file has downloaded, copy it to your micro:bit just like copying a file to a USB drive. On Windows you can right click and choose "Send To→MICROBIT."

Windows "Enviar A"

Paso 4: Diviértete

The micro:bit will pause and the yellow LED on the back of the micro:bit will blink while your code is programmed. Once that's finished the code will run automatically!

La unidad MICROBIT se expulsará y volverá a conectarse cada vez que lo programes, pero su archivo hex desaparecerá!

What cool stuff will you create? Your micro:bit can respond to the buttons, light, motion, and temperature. It can even send messages wirelessly to other micro:bits using the 'Radio' feature.
