We will attempt to clear up some of the mystery of the module and dig into the capabilities of it. There will also be a review of different boards that the module is available on and look at the differences between them. Finally, we will run some demo projects to demonstrate the capabilities.

You can find these boards on Adafruit, Sparkfun, Amazon, and eBay. So if you would like to play along during the presentation, order them from one of the links below and bring your computer with the Arduino IDE installed and we will walk through getting set up.
