ESP32 For Busy People: What is this course about?

Here's another video of my new ESP32 course, "ESP32 For Busy People".

In this video, I provide more information about the content of the course. This should give you a better understanding of what to expect in it.

Please note: at the end of the video, I mention several videos that you can watch in the first section of the course. We are still working on those video, so they are not ready just yet. I'll update this post when they are, and provide links to them.

If you haven't watched the promotional video, here it is.

The full transcript of the video is below.

Please post your comments below, I'm eager to hear from you 🙂

Hi I'm Peter, the instructor of this course.

You're watching this video so I guess that you want to learn how to use the amazing ESP32.

Like me, you know about this powerful microcontroller and you're interested in using it in your projects.

You've already used the Arduino in your projects but you've hit a limitation.

Perhaps your projects need more memory, more speed, and more pins.

You've heard that the ESP32 is a powerful microcontroller that can replace the Arduino.

With a ESP32, you can get a lot more capacity to build more interesting projects almost for free.

The problem is that the ESP32 is not a plug-in replacement for the Arduino.

While it shares much of the Arduino's programming and GPIO interfaces, you still need to learn the basics before you can deploy it.

So, you did what most of us do.

You've Googled around and you've looked around the Internet looking for answers.

You've watched hundreds of YouTube ads waiting for that ESP32 tutorial to begin; only to find out it wasn't what you were looking for.

If you've had enough of Googling, and you want to learn the ESP32, then this course is for you.

You're just too busy to waste time.

You value quality content you value your time and, most important, you just want to learn.

Right?

In this course you learn what is the ESP32 and what are those various modules with that name.

How are those modules until about two hours in the form of development kits?

What are the differences between the ESP32 and the Arduino, and what are their similarities.?

How can we use what we know from the Arduino to make things based on the ESP32?

How can we use it ESP32 GPIOs to work with simple components like LEDs and buttons, but also to drive peripherals like sensors and motors?

How can we set up the familiar Arduino IDE so that we can write programs for the ESP32?

You'll learn how to use a ESP32 to drive motors, store data in non-volatile memory, and communicate with near-field the devices and the Internet.

In this course I've also included numerous many projects to demonstrate how to use capabilities such as GPIO read and write, classic Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy, Wi-Fi, digital to analog conversion, touch sensors, and more.

Larger projects will also show you how to create simple Internet of Things and Bluetooth applications to name just a few.

If you're ready to learn more please be sure to watch the following lectures in this introductory section.

There, I provide information about the required hardware and software, the course prerequisites and the course structure.

    Dear Sir, Thank you very much for working on ESP32. Hope we will soon get your full tutorials like your other tutorials on Arduino. I also request to work on ESP8266.

    With Warm Regards

    Sounds like a great course, but the cost might be a stumbling block.

    • Hi Steve,

      Creating courses like this one is expensive.

      Our team has humans that research, create and edit the content (apart from me).

      They also look after you, run the website and keep Tech Explorations alive.

      There’s equipment, software, space, time…

      There’s a massive array of costs that come into play in a business like this.

      None of this is free, and our students are our only source of income. With this income (and you), Tech Explorations courses would not exist.

      As with all of our courses, we want them to be affordable to as many people as possible, not cheap (i.e., not valued by our customers).

      Having said that, I think you will be pleased with the launch price of ESP32 For Busy People.

      Kind regards,

      Peter
