    Im up to order a development board from Mikroelektronika.
    http://www.mikroe.com/en/tools/

    129 $ + shipping costs.

    My purpose is:
    Gaining programming skills (i have read some e books)
    Dealing with school project.

    So is it a best choice to make ?
    Considering fact that on the board, there are touchscreen and ... Stuff i may not need.

    Also :D I need to know ...
    - Where/how to start programming (atm. i know what is it like to blink LEDs using basic, C and flowcode) + compiling programming skill with school project...
    - What are you suggesting for school project - topic ? (Im learning heat and manufacturing automation)
    - How to utilize programming skill during earning $ in future.

    Thank you !
    And every reply is welcome !!!

    It's a decent development board, my Junebug LAB $49 (PICkit2 + 18F1320 tutor) will get you started and it's MPLAB compatible.

    What is MPLAB compatibility. I understand what is MPLAB ...
    I can use compilers output (.hex) right ?
    I guess ill learn about it later.

    Is it important that it is compatible with MPLAB ? Or it is something like efficient use of ICD. Or it is just easier to install code to chip ?
