Python is one of the most widely used, simple and easy-to-learn programming languages around. MicroPython is a lean implementation of the Python 3 programming language that has been pared down to run efficiently on microcontrollers.
MakePython ESP32 is preloaded with MicroPython, simple and suitable for beginners to learn the basic programming with MicroPython, Of course, users can free to change it to make it work with other platforms such as Arduino/GCC.

Model: MAKT32

2.Connect WiFi

Click to download the file.
open the file and modify the 'SSID' and 'PASSWORD' to local WIF and password:

SSID = "Makerfabs"     #Modify here with SSID
PASSWORD = "20160704"  #Modify here with PWD
