"Teaching the BTEC L3 and L4 Microcontroller units to students with a mechanical engineering background using the Arduino IDE was a struggle for both the students and myself.
Then I discovered Flowcode and life became so much easier. No worries about missing semicolons, round brackets where curly brackets should have been used etc. Flowcode is
more than just an entry level tool to programming with the more able students tackling some really complex problems using timer interrupts, I2C peripherals and simple

"We have been using Flowcode since 2010 in our microcontroller laboratories. Flowcode is the ideal perfect system to teach the students a systematic and organized, but simple
way of programming microcontrollers. Since Flowcode covers multiple microcontroller platforms, the students are not limited to one type of microcontroller. About three years
ago, we updated our control laboratory, and we started using Flowcode for digital control on dsPIC microcontrollers. Flowcode is a great educational tool, updated frequently
to keep up with the newest and most advanced technologies. Many of our students use Flowcode in the design and programming of their senior embedded system design projects.
They love the advanced simulation and In Circuit Testing capability of Flowcode too (Ghost Technology). I cannot explain enough my appreciation and my students' enjoyment
and satisfaction of learning using Flowcode. I must also mention the prompt help and support provided by Matrix at all times. Finally, after using Flowcode for several years,
flowcode proved to the best tool for programming several microcontroller platforms from entry level student projects to very advanced and sophisticated projects."

"In 2015, the department of electronic engineering began using a range of E-blocks hardware solutions for specific telecommunications programs to be taught at the University.
I used Flowcode for the students in a module called "Embedded Systems Engineering" (MSc and MEng module). Some students have never used microcontrollers before and they were
able to use Flowcode easily for basic microcontroller based embedded system design on a ping pong game. The students moved on to use Flowcode for a project on ZigBee based
wireless network system for environment monitoring. The project was very successful."
