Starting IoT Project with ESP8266

Starting IoT Project with ESP8266

The IoT (Internet of Things) extends internet connectivity beyond traditional devices like laptop & smartphones to a diverse range of devices that utilize embedded technology to communicate and interact with the external environment. All via the Internet. Examples of objects that can fall into the scope of IoT include connected security systems, thermostats, cars or lights in household.

The ESP8266 is a low cost IoT chip from Espressif (China), as a new generation of IoT hardware trends. First published on August 2014, this tiny WiFi chip has a small processor onboard, so it can actually function in complete autonomy, without an additional microcontroller board. It makes the ESP8266 the perfect piece of hardware for makers & IoT beginners.

In this workshop, we’ll stick to the basics IoT project. We will see how to configure the chip, and finally how to connect it to your WiFi network. We’ll simply be using the ESP8266 development board (NodeMCU), Arduino IDE to program it & also several IoT platforms to control & monitor the ESP8266.

The mentor of this workshop is Lintang Wisesa. He has 7 years experience in microcontroller world, including 3 years on Internet of Things. Also been awarded as 1st Hacksprint 1000 Startup Digital (2016), Top 6 IoT Innovator on BlackInnovation (2017), winner of MLDspot Local Product Content Hunt (2017), 1st winner of Local Digital Innovation by DiLo, Telkom & MIKTI (2017), 1st winner of Hackathon for Humanity by LINE & Girls In Tech (2018) & 2nd winner of Telkom Hackathon 2018.
