Re: British programming software
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).
