Happy Friday everyone. This week we have something a bit different for you. This week, we started shipping the long-awaited Particle Photon. In addition to the Photon itself, we also have all the shields ready to ship out!
Particle’s IoT (Internet of Things) hardware development kit, the Photon, provides everything you need to build a connected project. Particle has combined a powerful 120Mhz ARM Cortex M3 micro-controller with a Broadcom Wi-Fi chip in a tiny thumbnail-sized module called the PØ (P-Zero). Want to know more about the Particle Photon? Check out this video below, which goes over the Particle and the ecosystem.
Lastly, we have a little mini-contest this week. Post a comment down below talking about your favorite Photon shield and we’ll randomly pick 5 people and send them a Photon Kit. Be as descriptive and verbose as possible. Winners will be drawn on Monday 8/24/2015.
