Very little experience with PIC Microcontrollers.  
I have a project where I have to make a microcontroller that reads temperature, reads DC pulses, and DC power-on Time.
I'm looking for resources.  

First, I need a Learning Kit that deals with creating microcontroller projects using (I've seen them for C, but not for  
Is there a dedicated Zone for microcontrollers?  
What's some good websites for developing/designing microcontrollers?

    His is a link to the things I used to learn PIC programming.

    The best way to program these things is in assembler.  There is no .net.  You can find C because it is very close to assembler.  These processors have so little memory you are writing the operating system. There are NO built in libraries of functions to call.  You can barrow code to include into your program but nothing is built in.

    I'll guess you can find the code you need just by looking.  Here is one I found.

    Even simpler...

    Is this helpfull?
