PlatformIO is an open source ecosystem for IoT development
Cross-platform build system. Continuous and IDE integration. Arduino and ARM mbed compatible


Came across this cool IDE, built on top of Atom for dev of iot. There is also a commercially supported offering.

ESP2866 — WiFi for the Arduino

Posted by & filed under Adruino, Electronic, Hardware, Hardware Development.

This board is really freakin cool. It no only has a SoC chip that is essentially a UART to WiFi, it’s microprocessor is also programmable and has a PWM pin as well. On Arduino day, it was announced that the Arduino IDE now supports the ESP2866 making things a lot easier.
