You may have heard about Adafruit’s Internet of Things platform adafruit.io – we are pleased to announce that we’ll be posting up projects from users on the platform every Tuesday as part of our new IoTuesday initiative! Check in every week for posts from our community on adafruit.io and go here to submit your own adafruit.io project to the blog or use #AdafruitIO on social media.
Here at Adafruit, we sell all of these amazing components, but we couldn’t find a good way to interact with them over the internet. There are certainly a lot of great services out there for datalogging, or communicating with your microcontroller over the web, but these services are either too complicated to get started, or they aren’t particularly fun to use. So, we decided to experiment with our own system, and that is how Adafruit IO got started.
To make it easy for people to get started using Arduino or ESP8266 we have starter packs with just about everything you may want to connect to the internet, with known-working WiFi modules!
