There is a product from Tag-Connect that is handy for using a relatively small amount of PCB real estate to provide a programming interface:

I was interested in using their TC2030:

to program a PIC device using a PICkit3, but was not interested in the assortment of cascaded adapter cables they offer:

I was further dissuaded from buying the above PICkit3 adapter, as I also wanted to use the TC2030 for ARM SWD targets.

The workaround was to do a small OSH Park PCB that uses the TC2030-IDC; I've provided the design here.

For consistency, it follows the same pinout described in the TC2030-MCP datasheet:

which is shown here a hopefully more helpful form here:
