ESP32 dedicated freely downloadable book

Postby kolban » Tue Nov 01, 2016 3:54 am

Folks,
A book covering ESP32 exclusively been updated and released. The download can be found here:

https://leanpub.com/kolban-ESP32

This book is free for download and you may choose to contribute to its on-going development and upkeep only should you find value within. Over the months ahead, my plan is to keep refreshing it with new and polished materials.

Please feel free to use this thread for discussions on the book ... however, for technical question, please post those as separate topic threads.

The December 2016 release is now available. Lots of new content as we all learn more about the new device and a ton of new content to come as ESP-IDF 1.0 becomes available.

Hi Neil,
Is there a place where you prefer suggestions and corrections to be submitted?
While I'm here, found a note about esp_wifi_init function which is no longer relevant:
Note: As of 2016-10, this function should not be explicitly called as the WiFi initialization is performed for us
before user code is invoked.

Howdy Ivan,
This material started from a base of the ESP8266 book. Initially I thought there wouldn't be enough material for an ESP32 specific work and boy was I wrong. As such, there is a ton of stuff that was previously pertinent to ESP8266 that is either no longer pertinent (event in ESP8266 world) or not pertinent to ESP32. I'm still very much in learning mode myself on the new device. There has been virtually no fact checking done on the structure as a whole. My high level plan is to wait for ESP-IDF 1.0 to become available and then use that as the base for the programming models. A couple of months after ESP-IDF 1.0 becomes solid and Ive had a chance to study each of the functional areas, the hope is to go through the work page by page and for each, fact check everything. Where I reference an ESP32 API call, validate that it actually exists and works as described. That will just be "drudge work" but important none-the-less. With that release I'll post here and say that we have reached a milestone where the notes will be open for general error reporting.

At this time I'm particularly only interested in areas that I have covered as ESP32 which are factually in error and would cause a reader gross confusion of wasted time.

Later ... gotcha ... the editor note about not needing esp_wifi_init() has now been removed and will be gone in the Jan 2017 release. Thank you kind sir.
