The gang from Adafruit will host the Hack Chat on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 at noon Pacific Time!
Time zones got you down? Here's a handy time zone converter.
It's always an event when we have Adafruit on the Hack Chat, and last time was no exception. Then, the ESP32-S2 was the new newness, and Adafruit was just diving into what's possible with the chip. It's an interesting beast -- with a single core and no Bluetooth or Ethernet built-in, it appears to be less capable than other Espressif chips. But with a faster CPU, more GPIO and ADCs, a RISC-V co-processor, and native USB, the chip looked promising.
Among their other duties, our friends at Adafruit have spent the last six months working with the chip, and they'd now like to share what they've learned with the community. So Limor "Ladyada" Fried, Phillip Torrone, Dan Halbert, and Jeff Epler will stop by the Hack Chat to show us what's under the hood of the ESP32-S2. They've worked on a bunch of projects using the chip, and they've taken a deep-dive into the chip's deep-sleep capabilities, so stop by the Chat with your burning questions about low-power applications or anything ESP32-S2-related and ask away.
Plus, a late and exciting addition to the agenda: we'll be talking about the recently released RP2040, the first custom chip from the folks at Raspberry Pi. We've already started talking about the Raspberry Pi Pico, the dev board that uses the chip, and Adafruit will share what they've learned about the RP2040 so far.
