It is now possible to get a WiFi - enabled *CE + FCC certified* microcontroller module for just above 2 Francs. Documentation might be quirky at times and getting started difficult, however - together with the maker community - the vendor, Chinese silicon company Espressif systems, is working to provide example code and help out on the forums. This introductory course will show you how to write C code, compile and flash it to the ESP8266 module using Arduino IDE.
Bring your own laptop (Win/Mac/Linux)!
