Move over Uno, there's a new board on my bench
A couple of weeks ago I posted four things to know about the ESP8266 before using one. The biggest surprise from that post is people seem to think I do not like the ESP8266!

Wait what? James uses something other than Arduino? Yes, I do! I have many different boards and have used most of them for one task or another.
However, when it came to day-to-day “make something quickly” type work, I relied on my Uno. But not anymore. Here are the 5 reasons the ESP8266 is my go-to Arduino board.
