[sdiy] Your current fave ARM Cortex-M dev board...

The STM discovery boards are a great place to start with bare-bones ARM coding, and very cheap.

What's your friend's experience with embedded coding? Bare-bones ARM can be a bit of a steep learning curve, I found.

I've not tried them but the MBeds are popular, and probably a lot easier to get going with.

Then there's the Forebrain from universal air [1] which is great and has some good libraries.
