Probably, but even if it isn't the experience you pick up will transfer. Once you learn what to do it doesn't take long to learn how to do it on different platforms.

From the perspective of a 13 year old, yes. From the perspective of a oldie like me no, something once again will come along and make it irrelevant.

Simple answer: Arduino is the best choice of any that you have right now. Go for it.

Where are you located?  What / who is there around you that might be helping you?

Actually, I believe spelling is a pattern-recognition talent ,much like musical ability, and should be marked the same way in school.

I have always gotten great spelling grades with absolutely no effort. Words just LOOK right or wrong.

I worked for several years with a great designer and software architect at IBM, who had a bachelors in EE and a Masters in Computer Science. He couldn't spell to save his a**, not some 5-letter words!  We wrote two specialized computer languages over 8 years at IBM, which were widely used in Semiconductor test by about 100 people.  THEY had to spell the keywords right, but my friend only had to get them correct once, in the compiler-building code.

Right now when I misspell somethin it shows up in red, with suggestions. FM.

Spelling: Don' Worree Aboot It!!!

Yes I am actually dyslexic myself, and words with fewer letters are actually harder to spell.
However I suspect the OP was being slovenly, most of the time you can get the first letter right.

Did you hear about the agnostic dyslexic? He doesn't believe there's a Dog.

While not diagnosed I'm sure I'm numerically dyslexic if there is such a thing. I constantly mix numbers, eg I'll read 1234 and then write down 1243 or some such.

Similarly to what Terry was saying I find that it's often better for me to remember an "image" of the number rather that the individual characters.

The fact that the last two posters have Solder and Hexadecimal in their sigs shows that they originated Pre-Arduino.

I was taught to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find one...  smiley-razz

On the premise, at least for this post, that "Humans are only off-topic when they're dead":

I liked this, which I read in the New York Times the other day: http://terryking.us/p/A-Sharper-Mind.pdf 

My Dad, who was a Broadcast Engineer and Ham all his life, can still tell you the difference between an 828 and an 813.  He's 99.  Hope that's hereditary!!

Oh, to the Original Poster: Welcome, and you will get some friendly help here. 

I got an incredible amount of help from older-than-me people when I started learning tekkie stuff, about 1952. 

That's a tradition that I think "IS going to go on for ever!"

Just a tad smiley

Interesting article, having not finished school I thought I was in trouble for a while but it seems I may do better in my dotage.

Yes it is called dyscalculia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyscalculia
My wife teaches children that suffer that as well children with dyslexia.

Sadly I didn't, that is why I am keen to do it now. The internet is great for that.
