Espressif ESP8266 workshop

Some time ago one of our Dutch picoTCP engineers gave a workshop on how to use picoTCP on the Espressif ESP8266 wifi platform. This chip is very popular among hobbyists because it is really cheap, really small and pretty easy to get started with.

During this workshop we showed how easy it is to port picoTCP to such a platform and add functionality such as a DHCP server, mDNS support and a fully functional webserver serving http pages.

This evening, the twenty participants were able to learn what is needed to have picoTCP run on such a platform and receive all the performance and features of the TCP/IP stack.

If you are interested in learning how to do this yourself during such a workshop, let us know and we'll happily try to arrange another workshop near you.
