QEMU short for Quick Emulator is an open-source emulator that has now been extended to emulate a complete micro:bit running exactly the same software as on the real device.

With summer around the corner, Element 14 has announced the next phase in its micro:bit education mission - the Summer Code Club Challenge!

You can now place your orders for the micro:bit and expect to receive the device in late June or early July. It is more expensive than a Pi Zero, but it has a lot more onboard.


The newly formed Micro:bit Educational Foundation is headed by Zach Shelby, former Director of Technology for Internet of Things at ARM.
