Using Cloud Storage for Device Memory #IoTuesday #DigiKey #AdafruitIO @AdafruitIO @MakerIO
Maker.io posted a blog (and video) about using the cloud to store information off-device. While you can send sensor data to the cloud, there are other types of data to send and retrieve to/from the cloud such as configuration settings, sensor readings, audio files, and scripts.
The blog post discusses using cloud services, and bridiging between non-internet-enabled devices (like the Micro:Bit) and connected devices (such as the ESP32).

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
