Build your own WiFi development board in this workshop!

Flyer for the CheeseBoard: Cheddar WorkshopJoin Mouse and Dr. Matt Little to build a WiFi connected development board!

This workshop will be on Thursday, 30 November, from 19:00 – 22:00.

The board is called CheeseBoard: Cheddar, a fully open-source kit from The Curious Electric Company. The board is based on the ESP8266 WiFi system on a chip (the NodeMCU Amica development board) – it’s been designed to try out your ideas quickly and easily, and is a great learning platform for developing ideas on the ESP8266/NodeMCU.

The board contains:

  • ESP8266 Amice NodeMCU unit
  • 124 x 64 pixel OLED display
  • Rotary encoder with push-switch
  • 5 x WS2812 RGD LEDs

There are also breakout pads for connecting serial data and also a socket for an HC-12 wireless serial module.

This workshop will be a mixture of soldering the kit together (just basic through-hole soldering), fitting it into the enclosure, and uploading some basic code.

We’ll be providing some basic programs to get started, but if you could bring along a laptop with the Arduino IDE already installed.

This workshop will be £20 and tickets are available now and are limited.
