Getting started with ESP8266 – NodeMCU

ESP8266 is a Wifi  enabled microcontroller on the boom. The  rise of Internet of things and the launch of this chip has taken over many  other wifi modules which are quiet expensive. There are quiet a number of choice of selecting your esp8266 board. I got a couple of them manufactured by Olimex. I just ‘t started working on this chip, sure there will be more post about this one. At the moment I was able to flash  nocemcu lua intertpreter to the chip.

For flashing this chip I used 1. Sparkfun FTDI Basic breakout, wires,Breadboard and ESP8266 module. I connected them like shown below.
