Why STM microcontrollers are getting more popular these days? the best material to start with STM?

@0pencircuit The answer to your question brings in many parameters to be discussed. No product can become a hit in the market just like that. It involves lot of technical support and some of the best marketing strategies for a product to become popular. But, as we discuss more about technical stuff in here I would give some brief specifications of STM32 why it became a hit in market for learning embedded systems.
Board is designed in such a way that it can be interfaced very easily with Arduino IDE and through it's HAL's like STM32 Cube.
Excellent community support for STM32.
If you observe the size of STM32 chip it's really pretty small which enables it's usage for designing really small and qualitative commercial grade products.
It is super easy to learn and doesn't involves hard macro forms( to be simple "Syntax"). The best way to learn this board is to download this course. As far as I researched this course has given me good path to learn STM32. They teach you all the concepts very carefully. Download the course from this Torrent Link

Hi @0pencircuit ,
Actually the STM (STMicroelectronics) is the company name who makes the STM32 is a family of 32-bit Microcontroller based on ARM architecture and it comes in a wide variety of models and the selection depends on your applications.

@kowshik1729 thanks bro
I haven't found a good sensor module for this at al
another option is that you can build capacitive sensor your own with resistors.

Have you ever wondered what the future of energy would be like? Especially since machine learning has opened up such a wide range of innovations and opportunities?
Care to take a look at the answers?

@salmanfaris best if you could point me to an example that works as described: getting different values depending on hoe close the finger is without really touching. nothing i tried did work yet
@salmanfaris I haven't found a good sensor module for this at all. I used a thing which was calles touch sensor and it returns only 1/0. Tried to use touchRead() but it is not sensitive apparently, only 40 and 1 more or less.
#define touch_pin_numer 33
const int VALUE_THRESHOLD = 30;
TOUCH_SENSOR_VALUE = touchRead(touch_pin_numer);
if(TOUCH_SENSOR_VALUE < VALUE_THRESHOLD)
Serial.println ("Touch ON");
Serial.println ("Touch OFF");
should show something between 40 (current max) and 1 (current min) the closer the finger gets but it shows 40/41/39 and 1 - nothing inbetween. got this code from the web
