course in the making

Postby mairswartz » Tue Nov 28, 2017 6:24 am


I am starting work on creating a video course on I'm hoping to get newbies or guys that only have Arduino experience into the esp-idf for writing code on the esp32.
I will be covering topics including
  • esp-idf installation
  • project setups and config
  • GPIO
  • i2c
  • deep sleep
  • PWM and other wire protocols
  • WIFI
  • BLE
  • OTA
1) are there any topics you would like to see in such a course?
2) would you be interested in participating in such a course?

looking forward to your feedback

Hi mairswartz,

I was (am) a Arduino+Processing Boy.

Topic I'd like to learn:
1. difference between lwip & linux tcp/ip stack
2. library porting
3. Debugging (gdb)
4. Webserver access filesystem on SD card filesystem (transfering big dump)
5. freeRTOS system monitoring (free heap / CPU Load / free Stack of each task)
6. Flash partition content exportation
7. Flash partition content encryption
8. built-in RTC in power-failing -> replug read time and reinit system
9. Write Logfile /Historian
10. Powerfail detection / Supercap (Circuit)

I'm eager to take your course!

I was an arduino instructor at college, and I'm now working with C for embedded systems (currently working on atmega, atxmega, and ARM cortex M0). I mostly have noticed that there is not an easy to understand reference list through each system's keywords with which one codes its registers, pins, peripherals, etc. I mean, one can get the datasheet and get a good overall idea of each part of the system and their registers, but usually one has to look for examples or lurk through libraries to understand some obscure prefixes and suffixes in order to actually code them on the IDE. I would love to see such a guide, and useful examples.

Looking forward to your course on this awesome SoC uC! :)
