I'm about to start embedded programming and have an STM32f103C8T6 ARM-Coretex-M3 board to get started with. I'm also a C++ programmer and want to use that language to program a project to blink the LED of that board as my first embedded task. Apart from the board and two machines (Windows and Linux) I have also an MB-102 breadboard and a bunch of cables in hands.
Firstly I wanted to make use of this tutorial for the task above but it's dealing with NUCLEO-L476RG that I lack for the time being.
As the subject of the thread reveals, I'm an absolute beginner and need a step-by-step tutorial on how to start and go forward until the project is done and the board's LED is blinking. What good resource/tutorial do you suggest that I follow, please?
The other question is, except for that STM board, breadboard and the cables, what else should I purchase to be ready for the project, please?
Thanks in advance.
Hasn't this already been covered in your previous thread?
To find recommended development/evaluation boards for any particular microcontroller, see:
Not really! :)In my preceding thread I was looking for a suitable STM board to get started embedded programming. Now I have found it and that is STM32F103C8T6 (Blue Pill). Of course I have not forgot your suggestion board, Nucleo, and have ordered it. But I would like to start by the Blue Pill first. This thread seeks a step-by-step tutorial on how to get started embedded programming using that board. Your links are not addressing that need, but thanks. I've found a couple of webpages talking about Blue Pill and am going to use them for my purpose. If you also have some resource good for me I will be happy to see. :)

So after going through all the reasons not to get one of them in the other thread - you got one of them!
So, as explained in the other thread, you'll need to get yourself an ST-Link, or equivalent.
Once again I wrote a reply but it's not shown! :( :|

Sorry I don't know why I chose that board properly but the situation in my hell country is different. It took a week until I could find a blue pill and order it. Of course I haven't forgot your suggestion and ordered the Nucleo board abroad. It may arrive in more than a month.

One like this?
