Long time web programmer now getting into electronics as hobby projects and perhaps small custom productions.
I'm partial to using microcontrollers instead of Pi's, because I'm thinking I don't need the complexity of a full OS for most things. With Rasberry Pi, I can use my familiar technology stack, but with MCU's it's naturally much lower level.
Apart from the priviledge of license fees of Mongoose, what do I actually get? And is the large fragmentation of Ardiuno libraries a problem? Many libraries doing the same thing, more or less.
What will be your recommendation for this noob with a tech background?
