ESP12E (NODE MCU) WIFI DEVELOPMENT BOARD Setup & Programming (LED Blink)

Introduction

If you are seeing this tutorial directly then you can start from beginning "Getting Started with ESP12E".  Now we will setup the ESP12E (Node-MCU) Wifi Development Board on breadboard and program it with blinking LED. So lets start. Take your half size breadboard and set it up as shown in the following image:

Connect the micro usb cable to your laptop and follow the below steps.

  1. Open your Arduino IDE.

And done. It will blink the led on the board with a one second delay. It should not give any error if you have followed the steps properly. It will produce the following output:

Hope you enjoyed the tutorial. In the next tutorial, we will upload the data from our ESP12E (Node-MCU) Wifi Development Board on the cloud.
