|Another PIC guy here. Have been hacking in them for over a year. Used the ARRL book on PIC programming -the first version to learn on. Did spend a lot of time figuring out the programming of the chips with the PicKit stuff. You do have to understand the MPlab software architectures to install some updates. A bit quirky for sure.
Have built a keyer with a PIC chip. Also playing around with Arduino stuff mainly for the cool add on modules you can get. It is another level up from PIC programming, though.
