Book published!

A while ago Parallax asked me to contribute to an official guide for the Propeller- today it’s finished!  It’s available at Amazon.
Here’s more info:
Parallax brought together 9 experienced authors to write 12 chapters on the many facets of multicore programming with the Propeller chip.
The book begins with an introduction to the Propeller chip’s architecture and Spin programming language, debugging techniques, and sensor interfacing. Then, the remainder of the book introduces eight diverse and powerful applications, ending with a speech synthesis demonstration written by the Propeller chip’s inventor, Chip Gracey.
Numerous illustrations and example programs accompany each application. Example source code and other related resources are available for free download from!

  1. Thanks for this post. I equally agree with what you are saying. I have been talking about this subject a lot lately with my father so normally this will get him to see my point of view. Fingers crossed!
