Production Update; Next Revision

While waiting for funds transfer, I took some time to review the remaining issues with both the Flasher and Kits. I decided what needed to be fixed, and what is not really important but may cause delays. As the result of that work, 2 more PCB revisions have come to light, with a few extra features added. Though it involved some difficulties, the first batch consisting of 60 Flashers and 15 Kits have been sent to production and should get back to me within a month. Fingers crossed, they should reach their first happy customers not long after. Read the full update.

Our Crowdfunding Campaign is Now Live!

Have you ever felt like you use only a fraction of your Arduino's capabilities? I feel that way all the time. So why not just start working with a bare ATtiny85 in the first place? For me, the answer has always been that doing so was just...terribly inconvenient. But it doesn't have to be! ATtiny Flasher is a tool that I built so that I could develop ATtiny-based projects in much the same way that I would if I were using a "grown-up" Arduino. That means having access to my favorite IDE, familiar libraries, and of course serial debugging capability. Read the full update.
