I am using Matlab 2019 home edition and looks like a lot of people like me are hoping to get Embedded coder so they can work on their hobby projects with STM32 controllers. Based on what i have seen so far it doesnt look like Mathworks is going to sell this package to home users. I just wanted to check with the community experts if there's a low end alternative to embedded coder for hobbyists or wheather there's a way to expand arduino support packages to include stm32 ? Since this is purely for hobby project i can live without the advance features that come with embedded coder.

I'm currently in the same boat, except that it's not a "hobby" to me. Mathworks will NOT sell us the tools we NEED to get a JOB with that "corporate email" they demand. 🤦‍♂️ I'm really disapointed and disgusted 🤮 with this CORPORATE abuse. I actually lost my home because my "boss" said I didn't have enough skill with Matlab.

Hi Prashant,
Thanks for your interest in using Embedded Coder with MATLAB Home. We're always looking for feedback from customers, so appreciate your comment.
Would you mind sharing a bit more about how you'd use Embedded Coder with STM32? It would help us better understand what Home users would like to do.
Thanks,
Bill

Does "Bill" even care, or he just placating us?
I need HDL Coder to design and build a motor controller product so that I can SELL and overcome the POVERTY I come from. I cannot find JOB and I don't yet have the SKILL with HDL coder to start a COMPANY.
They keep putting the cart before the ox, making it IMPOSSIBLE for us to get out of this poverty hole some of us are in. I lost my home, can't find a job, can't gain the SKILLS to get THEE job I've been working for decades at.
Rules like this are keeping us BEHIND. I'm not asking for a HANDOUT, but Mathworks won't even take our MONEY for these tools. I'm pretty disgusted at how Mathworks is ABUSING us like this. If there were an alternative, I'd use them instead.
