About this event

Better late than never!

Join us for the first IoT event of the year where we will build a two-way messaging thing!

We will be working with a ESP8266 board, some buttons, LEDs and a LCD screen in order to send and receive messages between devices!

We will also walk through setting up a REST service so that you can have your devices communicate across any internet connection.

Should be a lot of fun and I hope to see you there!

Here is a list of parts that will be used:
ESP8266: https://www.amazon.com/HiLetgo-Internet-Development-Wireless-Micropython/dp/B081CSJV2V
1602 LCD Display: https://www.amazon.com/KEYESTUDIO-Display-Arduino-Raspberry-Stm32/dp/B0177XQE7K
