Flowcode - Getting Started Guide

If you are new to Flowcode, you're in the right place. This document is the definitive guide to get you started with creating and programming with Flowcode. Using any of the supported hardware you should finish this course being able to program a variety of interesting and fun examples. The course covers two main sections:

  • In Section 1 we will provide an overview of the Flowcode IDE. How users interact with the environment, add components to the simulation panel and create flowcharts.
  • In Section 2 we will run through three examples which will increase in complexity and teach you how to create microcontroller programs

This course can be used by anyone to see the examples in simulation, however to see the examples play out in hardware, the guide suggests you will require one of the following:

  • Matrix BL0011 PIC programmer and BL0114 combo board.
  • Arduino Uno and Matrix BL0114 combo board.
  • Microchip Xpress board
