ESP32 for Busy People

Get Started with This Powerful Microcontroller & Be Ready to Build Mini to Large IoT Projects

By Tech Explorations | in Online Courses

ESP32 is a low-cost, low-power system chip microcontroller that integrates Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, many GPIOs, analog input and output capabilities, many device interconnection protocols, and a fast dual-core processor. It goes hand in hand with Arduino Uno for turbo-charged IoT projects. However, ESP32 is not a plug-in replacement for Arduino. While it shares much of the Arduino’s programming and GPIO interface, you still need to learn the basics before you can deploy it. With 68 lectures, this course will primarily aim to help you get started with the basics of ESP32, its modules, and essential processes.

  • Access 68 lectures & 9.5 hours of content 24/7
  • Understand what ESP32 is
  • Know the various modules & how these modules are available in the form of development kits
  • Compare & contrast ESP32 and Arduino
  • Use your Arduino knowledge to make things based on ESP32
  • Use the ESP32 GPIOs to work w/ simple components like LEDs & buttons as well as drive peripherals like displays, sensors, and motors
  • Set up the familiar Arduino IDE to write programs for the ESP32
Note: Kits & tools NOT included.
