On Feb 19 & 20 (this Saturday & Sunday) we’re hosting a tutorial called Spread ideas with a pocket wi-fi portal. You’ll learn to create a wi-fi access point + web server using the Wemos D1 mini, a low-cost development board based on an ESP8266 microcontroller. It has onboard wi-fi, an 80 MHz processor, and 4 MB of storage. You can program it using the Arduino IDE.
