Here in the LPC team we are really excited re-energizing the LPC800 family and are working hard to help customers who want to make the transition from 8 and 16-bit MCUs to the Cortex M0/M0+. To this end we've created code bundles which consist of software examples to teach users how to program the peripherals at the basic level. The examples provide register level peripheral access, and direct correspondence to the memory map in the User Manual. Examples are concise and accurate explanations are provided within the readmes and comments in source files. LPC81x and LPC82x example code bundles are available now, ready for use with LPCXpresso, Keil and IAR, and easily portable to any development toolchain. I've posted some direct links below, but remember you can find these by looking under the Software & Tools tab from the product page of the LPC8xx you are using. Enjoy!
