    Which one did you ordered?

    Some PIC programmer comes with tutorials, example project and so on. And what language do you want to code in?

    PIC-PG4 from Spark Fun

    As for the language, which one is the best? I need one that's also easy to learn.
    It's the cake having/eating thing.

    If you got enough time and patience then ASM is ideal. I dont really know about BASIC or C in PIC because I havent tried it yet. From what I heard theres are some stuff you can never achieve with those lanaguages unless you use ASM.

    You will still need to understand ASM even if you wanna code in BASIC/C.

    Im trying to convert to BASIC or C because some of the code Im writing are to big to do in ASM and I tell you it is painful.

    If the code is not that complicated then you can do all of it in ASM. You can download the compiler from the microchip website.

    Start coding...its fun also frustrating

    I would also recommend assembly (ASM) language. It's the lowest level programming language, but also the most logical and intuitive. Download the free MPLAB IDE (integrated development environment) from Microchip. it's all you'll need to create the assembly code for programming.

    If you can make complex skins for mp3 players, you can code PICs.

    I hope I can, but it don't look easy.

    H Bridge

    Im not a big fan of limit switches myself, I would rather use servos, cut the limiters off and run them in free spin mode then use an AVR, or a PIC for you slow kids , and just measure movement in degrees. But if you really want the limit switches, I would just use an H Bridge instead of all this fun relay stuff. Any reason why servos are not an option? You can get some purdy high torque servos any more.
