Should I use CCS Cloud or CCS Desktop

CCS Cloud is a fast and efficient way to get started on your LaunchPad; however, if you require advanced debugging features to figure out why your program is not working, you may want to go with the traditional Code Composer Studio desktop tools. CCS Cloud projects are compatible with CCS Desktop projects, so you can always start with the Cloud tools and move to the professional desktop tools when the time is right for you.
