TechCity IoT Widget

Posted on Updated on

I recently ran a workshop at TechCity with Ryan White of rLab where we designed a IoT widget based on the ESP8266 chip. Participants got to make the whole board using modern surface mount soldering and through hole soldering techniques, look at the software toolchain and walk away with a widget that can sit on their desk that connects to the internet and tells them the current weather and the forecast – particularly helpful when you work in the basement and want to know if it is raining outside!
