I used esp8266 to make the product prototype
and my boss decided to switch to stm32+bcm43341
so I went study stm32+bcm43341 for like few months
and then he tells me that the price is too high, now switching back to esp8266.
WTF

@Makuna
Eh, didn't they consider price before they made a decision about switching?

@me-no-dev
@Palatis just in time for esp32 to come out and switch again :P
Victor Tseng
@Palatis
yeah really
they want BT
"can't we just have BT?"
and I was like "yeah, but, what for?"
".... marketing? ppl buy stuff if they got both BT AND WIFI"
dunno, I'm actually looking into esp32
can't get any sample
that's bad
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
I guess BT can be used to setup the device instead of WiFi
Victor Tseng
@Palatis
called espressif, they won't provide even esp31b
Me No Dev
@me-no-dev
esp31b does not have BT
Victor Tseng
@Palatis
I dunno, I just use the (stupid)-smartconfig
doesn't matter
cuz, they wanna use BT to determine RSSI, to find out how far the phone is away from the device...

everything is better with bluetooth

@me-no-dev
esp32 is in manufacturing, so expect it to hit the shelves soon
Victor Tseng
@Palatis
I say, why don't we just do it with WIFI RSSI?
"cuz we want BT for marketing."
what can you say?
I'm just a tiny RD, my words weights nothing.
so, okay, go for BT then.
and after like 2~3 months tell me "ok the price is too high, lets go back to esp8266."
so I guess I'll be stealing salary for the next few weeks just to wait for HW to layout the god damn schematics and get a devel pcb...
i thought they're providing esp32 somewhere late Sep?
Clemens Kirchgatterer
@everslick
there is plenty of work befor you have a pcb.
Victor Tseng
@Palatis
the works are almost done during the prototyping process.
Clemens Kirchgatterer
@everslick
decide on IDE, test libraries

I was asked to study that bcm solution JUST FOR BT
making me kinda blue anyway.
in mood i mean
I wasn't connecting enough LEDs and Buttons because of the lack of IO pins during the prototyping process
the only thing left is I2S, cuz I don't get a DAC either.
and I was keep argue about "get me the god damn I2S DAC so I can start my work! even OK if I have to etch my own breakout board"
and my boss just ignore me...
last week, my boss said "Hey Victor, we don't have any progress this week! what you think?"
what I think? I've got almost nothing left to do...
sometimes you just can't understand what those management departments are thinking

@me-no-dev
does he know any kind of programming?
Victor Tseng
@Palatis
he writes crappy PHP
if that's considered "programming"
at least <?php echo "<html></html>"; ?> stuff
