The devices come in very nice reusable packaging. The boxes are great for storage when the device is not in use.
Next, we power up the device. If you have the Expansion Board, you can easily power it up via microUSB. If not, you can power the pins directly with 3.6 to 5.5 VDC by connecting to V_IN and Ground.
Once the device is connected, search for a WiFi network called wipy-wlan. Connect to this network using www.wipy.io as the password.
Next, connect via Telnet to 192.168.1.1 using login "micro" and password "python". On most machines, you can telnet from the command line or terminal. Here is an example from a Mac:
You are now at a MicroPython command prompt!
Let's write our first MicroPython code:
Well that was easy!
There is a whole lot more we want to do with this board, and you can learn more by reading the WiPy MicroPython documentation.
If you have any ideas for projects with the WiPy or you have already made something cool, let us know! We would love to hear about it.
