So I've taken a course in java and gotten a solid grasp on it, I've learned using the arduino assembly language and messed around with it making some gadgets, and now I wan't to go further. I want to buy a pure microcontroller or processer without a board, and start programming simple stuff on it, later graduating to more complex stuff like video transmission and all the mind can dream off. What is the top tier final language engineers can use to do just about anything, like controlling a machine via radio and transmitting and recieving a radio using the same antennas. Even controlling a large LED screen, you get the point. So the question is, best language for microcontrollers for use in machines p.s. out of curiosity, what is windows written on?
