Now is your chance to dive into the world of ESP32 microcontroller training! This workshop is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills to get your ESP32 projects off the ground. From basic hardware setup and configuration to advanced communication protocols, this workshop covers it all. In just one day, you'll build five different projects that will set you well on your way to creating amazing ESP32-based systems.

The ESP32 has revolutionized the field of electronics, bringing advanced capabilities such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, robust processing power, and extensive I/O options into the hands of hobbyists, students, and entrepreneurs. Whether you're a young enthusiast as young as 13 or an experienced tinkerer, you can now build impressive systems for personal use or profit, transcending the barriers that once reserved such innovations for highly educated electronics engineers.

But… you need to start somewhere, right? Get a solid foundation and a “kick-start” in modern electronics with our hands-on workshop. This course isn't about drowning you in theory. While we will cover essential concepts, the focus is on building and understanding. You'll gain practical experience that enables you to duplicate and expand on what you've learned.

Is This Workshop for You?

  • Are you tired of wires that get in your way?
  • Want to learn a new micro-controller?
  • Do you want to stick to the Arduino IDE?

If your answer is yes, then this workshop is perfect for you!
