Picaxe microcontrollers

hi just wondering can i use a picaxe microcontroller without a project board (ie on its own or a bradboard?)

i dont think i even want to do this but it would help me learn a bit about how stuff works, probably

Yes you can but you need to

Yes you can but you need to make sure you follow the steps outlined in the picaxe manual 1 on how to set it up via BB. You will also need a way to program the chip…the project boards are useful for making that simple. To repeat, make sure you take a look at the manual 1 for the picaxe so you know what is involved.

Thanks ,everyone here is so helpful!
This sounds sarcastic but i cant put expression into my typing and it is not sarcastic
