what is the most user friendly software used to program PIC16F877A?
do you know any cool and simple projects using this microcontroller?
The CCS Compiler was pretty friendly, but its not free unfortunately 😔

The free MPLAB IDE software from Microchip looks good, but you'd need to use a 3rd party software to compile C. Check this thread for more info:

Scroll down to PIC stuff.

I'm using MPLab with Hi-Tech compiler, it's free.
Simple project:
Dot Matrix: This is the video, This is the code
Servo Motor: This is the video, This is the code
