British programming software

Hello,
I have found this "flowchart programming" software.  It supports many PIC 8, PIC 16, PIC 32 and some AVR MCUs.  Its price is modest when it is compared with some other commercial compilers.
 
Could you share your experiences?  Thanks.   grin

    I found their web page:
     
    https://www.matrixtsl.com/flowcode/
     
    It looks like a standard PIC license is 110 BP. There is also a free version for download, and various options. Looks like a decent package, but I doubt I will even try it.

    This is yet another tool from a vendor trying to attract more developers to using their "solution".
     
    This vendor has support for schools that offer instruction in coding for micro-controllers.
     
    In my view it seems like any other tool chain that has the goal of keeping a user locked in to that single solution.
     
    For me this is a problem as these kind of tool chains tend to support new controllers at a glacial rate (even considering the affect of climate change).

    I have successfully programmed my Curiosity HPC Board with the Flowcode 8 trial version.  grin: grin
     
    If the hardware of your project is within their supported domain, it is a good alternative choice.  Smile: Smile

    It's a good tool for beginners and allows you to program a wide range of MCUs from different vendors such as AVR, ARM, PIC, Raspberry pi with almost the same code base.
    really good for rapid development.

    It's quite widely used in schools, although there seem to be vanishingly fewer UK schools teaching "computer science" rather than "IT"

    This software do possess its own style.  It uses MPLAB X IPE to program.  I can apply it on my Curiosity HPC board.
