What Development Kits have you used in 2018?

So as we start the new year we thought it would be a good question to ask which development kits or boards you have used in 2018?

Do you have any recommendations as to your favourite in 2018 and why? 

What issues have you overcome using dev boards, and you are looking forward to using any particular development kit or tools in 2019.

Simply add a note in the comments below.

Just in case you missed it, we also added a new development tool to our DesignSpark offer in 2018 called Zerynth.

It's a middleware for IoT and Industry 4.0 which allows you to program microcontrollers in Python and connect them to the cloud. We even created a getting started with Zerynth guide here.

Here's to 2019

Espressif : ESP12 and ESP32

And of course RPi which is also everyone's favorite SBC

My brother bought me an STM32 development board that I am quite excited to play with in the new year. I would like to explore beyond the familiar AVR environment into the world of ARM-core processors which will allow me to develop the heavy lifting algorithms required for more advanced control systems and machine learning. The ability to process a lot of different I/O faster is important for larger projects and the use of Zerynth tools will make IoT integration a lot quicker to prototype on popular and industry standard 32-bit architectures.
