Slides from my Google DevFest 2020 talk in October.

In this IoT talk we will demo a home automation project by wiring up a switch to an ESP8266, write and load a MicroPython web service on the hardware, link it to Home Assistant.

This is a live hardware build and coding session. All hardware will be locally sourced, the instructions and code will be on GitHub.

Code is available on GitHub
