Hello (Microcontroller) World!

I made some LEDs blink with a tiny microcontroller (the PIC10F200) with a lot of help from this CircuitBread tutorial series (Figure 1).

Figure 1 - GIF of PIC10F200 based circuit blinking LEDs. Apologies for the low quality.

There's little more to say about the project itself other than it was immensely fun and gave me a deeper understanding of microcontrollers. I bought about ten PIC10F200s along with the one pictured since they are incredibly inexpensive and I plan to use them in future projects where an Arduino or Raspberry Pi would prove overkill.
