Great video about using Visual Studio to code and debug ESP32. Shows two tools I haven't heard of, Zadig for driver swaps on a Wintel and PlatformIO which extends VS to IOT devices.

Also the video starts with a "Dad" joke about programmers.

I've been learning about and programming on the Raspberry Pico. It has a debugging solution using a Raspberry Pi and a physical serial link, but I haven't needed that level of debugging [yet]. It's kind of amazing how much power you can get in a $5 (or less) embedded controller these days.

I have programming since ASM on Z-80. I have gotten more joy from coding these little gadgets than any WinTel machine. Happy coding!
