Start to think about new Project :wink:


Hello @bestes
I am almost ready with the description of my idea and I have a question:

In “How to enter” description is written that we should create our IoT project using at least one ESP8266 board/module, and submit our project to the contest!

So I need to create the project and then to enter or?
I am asking because I only have an ESP8266 but not the needed hardware for my project?

Should I apply the idea and description of my project ot the forum? If yes - to which section?

Thank you:)


Start submitting those projects!
