Python- Programmable Rainbow Badgeswith @ShrimpingIt
This accessible workshop shares how to wire up and program the wifi-enabled, python-programmable Cockle ESP8266, using the example of an 8 pixel color-controllable badge running off 4xAAA batteries. The ESP8266 is an emerging, exciting technology fuelling the development of the Internet of Things.
The Cockle is our own python-programmable remix of the NodeMCUv2 ESP8266 module that we buy in wholesale for less than £4! We share all our software and supplier information for others to replicate our work, but welcome your support buying pre-prepared kits.
