    This is the most comprehensive, understandable and carefully crafted introduction to the Micro:Bit that we have seen in a long time. We're proud to use it as a link at - David

    As a fourth grade teacher who recently started making with Arduino, I'm really happy to see that you are offering Micro:bit. I just played a bit with MakeCode, and it was very user-friendly. I even go the first few bits of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star to play.

    I hope to see continued support for this environment through Sparkfun.

    If you would like to send a "Teacher Review Kit" to me, I'd be happy to help out.

    If its called a BBC, it should run BBC basic which is a fantastic introduction to typed programming languages

    If it had a real compiled, strongly typed programming language instead of the toy or interpreted ones I'd order several right now.
