Let’s go friends and have fun with the Arduino / ESP8266.
This workshop will definitely a big boost to my technical know-how to manage ESP8266 effectively with Arduino, for a non-software guy like me.
For the record, here is my first encounter with ESP8266 with plug & play board (crowtail boards), my son is more interested and excited than me (while my ears is burning understanding the LUA language, thanks to Arduino it makes a lot easier) :
ESP8266 Node MCU Board (Crowtail) on top and my son hands – he is attracted with the glowing LED lights.
He is wondering why the red LED is lighted and while the green is not. It is because my Moto X+1 Phone running MEEO.io dashboard switch is OFF – he is not aware I am controlling over the Internet (simple sample of IoT).
Well………… the red LED lighted, here it is…!
I hope after this workshop, I’ll be in a better position to manage ESP8266 or even ESP32.
DON’T FORGET TO BRING YOUR WORKING LAPTOP WITH YOU AND SOME OF YOUR ARDUINO / ESP8266 boards.
See you @ Labzero…!
