Chapter 10. Talking to the internet with ARM: An Internet Connected “Fistbump”

 As mentioned earlier, one of the wonderful things about these powerful ARM based Arduinos is the ability to handle complex networking protocols. In this chapter, we’ll show you how to make a simple internet connected project based on the MKR WiFi 1010. As the name suggests, this board has a build-in module that allows you to connect to a WiFi network, and from there to the internet.
