What happened to microbit.co.uk?

On the 31st of December 2018 the website hosted at http://microbit.co.uk was retired and pages redirected to microbit.org. This includes the old Microsoft Blocks, TouchDevelop, Python or Code Kingdoms editors that are hosted there, and any associated scripts or projects that were saved there.

When did this happen?

December 31 2018. In 2017 we created articles detailing the process of migrating your content from the old site and up-to-date news about the deprecation of the old site and editors to fully prepare users for the switch off.

Why did we do this?

In order to take the great work of the BBC micro:bit rollout in the UK and make it accessible to a global audience, we consolidated editors and gave a greater focus to stability and innovation for educators worldwide. The current editors enable us to do this and to improve the micro:bit experience more dynamically.

This is an important change, so if you have any questions or you feel we’re missing important resources or documentation on microbit.org or in support.microbit.org, please let us know by creating a support ticket.
