Overview of this book

ESP32 is a versatile microcontroller and a great starting point for anyone venturing into the IoT realm, but its configuration and interfacing of sensors can be challenging for new users. Arduino Integrated Development Environment (IDE) simplifies programming, uploading code, and utilization of ESP32 capabilities, enabling users to incorporate it into their IoT projects with ease. This book will help you learn the essentials of sensing, networking, data processing, and applications with ESP32, laying a strong foundation for further IoT development. Starting with ESP32 and Arduino Ide 2.0 basics, you'll first explore practical implementation examples of interfacing sensors with ESP32. These examples will also teach you how to interface the ESP32 camera and display modules with ESP32. As you progress, you’ll get to grips with IoT network and data protocols, as well as the many options they unlock within IoT applications. The book will also help you leverage your newly acquired knowledge with exciting projects ranging from smart connected devices to data loggers and automation. By the end of this book, you'll confidently navigate ESP32 projects with newfound knowledge and skills, know what IoT protocol to select for your applications, and successfully build and deploy your own IoT projects.

Enterprise clouds

This book is tailored for beginners, providing a foundation for IoT fundamentals. Throughout our journey, we’ve explored various data and network-based protocols, along with incorporating third-party services and databases such as the HiveMQ Messaging Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) broker, InfluxDB Cloud, and Grafana Cloud. These services operate on what we call “enterprise clouds” — large and robust cloud systems commonly employed by businesses. As we conclude, it’s valuable to introduce the concept of enterprise clouds, showcasing their significance in the tech landscape.

In this section, we’ll narrow our focus to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Azure IoT and delve into their IoT services. This sneak peek will offer insights into the workings of these substantial cloud services and how they can be beneficial for ESP32 and IoT projects.
