The idiot guide to ESP8266

In the coming days (weeks? months? years?) I’ll be talking about the ESP8266. ESP8266? From nurdspace.nl

“ESP8266 is a complete and self-contained Wi-Fi network solutions that can carry software applications, or through Another application processor uninstall all Wi-Fi networking capabilities”

I spent some time (more then I’m willing to admit!) reading numerous guides and blogs and so forth about the little fucker!

Pretty new to the world of electronics and microcontrollers (and with a faint mind) the guides never suited my needs so I thought I’ll do a series of guides for myself and other idiots out there!

Coming next:
Part 1. Install FTDI-drivers on Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite
Part 2. Hook up your ESP8266!
