In case you're interested, I received (last week) the PCBs I designed, did some soldering and procrastinating and coding, and now I have a working prototype. Of course I made some mistakes, but they did not prevent the thing from working. Had to give some 4-leg buttons a leg amputation (I accidentally shorted the output to ground through the pin on the other side, I also remember expressly not doing that but I think I then messed it up in a circuit-refactoring), and the rotary encoders are more glitchy than expected (the input filtering of STM32 timers in encoder mode is not sufficient).

Overall I'd say STM32 is pretty nice, but CubeIDE (based on Eclipse) is (like Eclipse) not nice, merely "OK". Laggy as Elephant, and I managed to glitch out the code renderer just by putting a medium-length array initializer on one line (less than 1000 elements, come on), resulting in a largely blacked-out code window. At least it has a proper debugger, it's not the "debugging means printf over serial" stone age, and I don't need to upload the firmware manually. Also the built-in initialization code generator is handy.

Seeing the hardware that I designed come alive was nice.

8/10 would recommend overall, but I wish the IDE wasn't based on Eclipse.
