Uploading a Project (Optional)
How to upload a project?
To copy a program from the computer to the micro:bit, first we need to “translate” the program we made into a language that micro:bit understands. This process is known as compilation.
We compile the program from code to
hex (the language that
micro:bit understands). In MakeCode we just need to click on
Next, we connect the micro:bit to the computer using a USB cable.
You will see that a device called
MICROBIT appears in your computer.
To upload the program, just copy the
hex file you just downloaded into
MICROBIT device that appeared in your computer.
Your new program should be running now!
