The unit you saw in my video was a conventional component version (for development) prior to going surface mount for small indoor models using 6mm pager motors. A pal in industry (like you I'm retired now) has offered to do a load of my half postage stamp size boards on the edge of one of his production board runs, and just cut them off for me!
You should have seen my first projects with these microcontrollers. Those were the days when getting an LED to flash was a major accomplishment. That was 20 years ago.
I'm using the Picchip Pickit 3 with assembly code on various projects. Microchip allows you to program your project, set up break points, and so on, to single stepping through your program. You can program these chips in circuit, and try, erase, try, erase. You get the idea.
Send me a personal email if you are interested.
