7:15 Talk - How to use Espruino with WiFi - Roberto Santiago

Description: By now many if not most of us have had a chance to play with Espruino on the 8266 chip.  One of the prominent features of the 8266 chip is its WiFi capabilities.  The 8266 can serve not only as a WiFi client but also an access point.  It can even do both at the same time.  Impressively, some have been able to network together two 8266 chips from over a kilometer apart. We’ll review the basics of getting up and running with the 8266 and Espruino using flasher.js, go through a few examples of programming the WiFi capabilities and review some data about the distances these chips can cover.

Speaker Bio: Roberto Santiago is a technologist, data scientist and social justice advocate. He currently spends a lot of time nerding out on the IoT and Hadoop. Professionally, Roberto consults on big data and software projects. He is also founder of a new venture, Code for Nature, focused on bringing about the Internet of Nature. When not working you can find him exploring nature, smoking all sorts of meats and cooking up a feast for family and friends.
