James Lewis gives his quick take on why he’s recently switched from Arduino to ESP8266 for what he calls “day-to-day “make something quickly” type work.”
The ability to quickly switch my “Arduino code” from an Uno to an ESP8266 is a huge draw. The seamless WiFi connectivity makes internet communications very easy. Incredibly flexible GPIO with programming PWM frequency and high resolution even eliminated the need for a dedicated PWM chip. All of these reasons are why I have a nerd crush on the Adafruit HUZZAH Feather ESP8266 module.
