Transition from PIC32

I'm finally transitioning to ARM from the world of PIC32.  I've ordered a Kinetis Freedom demo board, but I am still unclear about actual prototyping with my own boards.

 

I've combed over data sheets and forums and google searches, but the missing link I cannot find any information on is how do I program the thing in my own circuit (similar to Microchip In Circuit Serial Programming)?  For instance: I will typically write code, simulate it, verify it on a breakout board/breadboard prototype, order the proto PCB, reflow it, then connect the 5 ICSP pins to a PicKit 3 programmer/debugger, and I'm off to the races.

 

I know the Segger J-Link exists (not sure if that is the way to go).  I know Kinetis Design Studio / Code Warrior exists.  I need to connect the dots on once I've written/compiled/simulated the code, how do I get it uploaded to the device without having to rely on a demo board?  Is there an app note or tutorial that covers that?

 

Thanks for your time.
