Re: "dinky little micro": I've programmed in C++ on a MSP430G2452 (8K

small micro like this 50 cent chip is an educational experience, it
challenges the assumptions of people who have never used a machine with
less than a couple of gigabytes of RAM :-)
Definitely. I would replace C++ with C, to keep all underlying concepts
in plain view with no behind-the-scene magic.
The simpler the model, the easier it is to concentrate on the
essentials: HP calculators with (if I remember correctly) 49 'program
steps' helped a lot in teaching me resource management.
