Programming Raspberry Pi Pico
The Raspberry Pi Pico module can be programmed usingCircuitPython,MicroPython,CandC++language. To upload a program to the board, press and hold the BOOTSEL button and connect the Raspberry Pi Pico to the computer via a microUSB cable. The module will be detected as a USB mass storage device named RPI-RP2, drag and drop the program file into the RPI-RP2 volume. The manufacturer has prepareda repository on GitHubwith sample programs to work with the Maker Pi Pico Base overlay.
