ESP32 Unleashed is a project course. The structure of the course resembles my development process. My development process, whether it is a course, a gadget, or a book, or fixing the washing machine, looks like this: Set the overall objective (what am I trying to achieve?) Set plan (how am I going to achieve my […]
In ESP32 For Busy People, I have a section on the SPIFFS, the SPI file system. In this section, I show you how you can upload a file (like an image, or a text file) to your ESP32 and then use it in your sketches. One thing I did not show was how to retrieve […]
In this article, I write about my top six reasons why I decided to learn how to use PlatformIO (in no particular order).
We are placing the final touches on a new course, titled “ESP32 Unleashed”. In this course, I’ll show you how to use the ESP32 dev kit to make a gadget that contains sensors, a touch screen, a custom PCB (no loose wires!), and Cloud services (you can even speak to it!). The real “kick” is […]
The previous PCB, v1.1, worked well “out of the box”. But I wanted to include more information about the various pins and their roles by adding text in the silkscreen. In this post, I describe the features of the new version of the PCB.
My new ESP32 course is almost ready, and I am very excited! 🤩 I just finished working on the promotional video. You can learn more about the contents of “ESP32 for Busy People” here. Enjoy! PS1. I’ve added the script below the video. PS2. Please post your comments below, I’m eager to hear from you […]
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 […]
In my last project update, I wrote about the PCB I designed on KiCad. These prototype boards are manufactured by PCBWay.The purpose of this PCB is:To move the project from the breadboard to a reliable platform (no loose wires!)To make it easier to experiment and learn with the ESP32 as I found that the breadboard […]
We are putting in the final touches for our new ESP32 course, titled “ESP32 for Busy People”. About the title… I was struggling to come up with one that reflected the character of the course and the intended audience. I designed this course for people who are already familiar with the Arduino, but feel that their […]
Today I received my ESP32 Devkit breakout from PCBWay (thank you to them for their support). I designed this breakout because I needed an easy, jumper wire-free, way to connect my ESP32 development board to the peripherals of my project: The TFT touchscreen, The BME280 sensor, A couple of indicator LEDs I also wanted […]
