Hi Rui, purchased your ebook (Learn ESP32 with Arduino IDE) this weekend and it is helping me, big time. I have been struggling with many 'easy' wifi methods. Your walk through are understandable and simple to follow. I put together the DHT22 web server and it's working well. I am now adding a voltage monitor.

Thanks again
