Last week, I started experimenting with Parse.com. Just like Azure, Parse is an online platform which can be used for hosting cloud applications including data storage. It offers a lot of powerful tools which will make IoT development much more fun, but has one major pitfall … until today!
After I discovered the awesome little ESP8266 Wifi module last week, I spent some extra time to check out how suitable this module is when I want to use it in an ‘Internet of Things’ environment. Or, to be more concrete: Could I use this module to connect my Annoying Dishwasher directly to the internet, without the use of the XBee & Raspbery system?
