CheerLights IoT Projects

CheerLights is an “Internet of Things” project that I created back in 2011 to help teach people IoT concepts. I consider it a “Hello, World” project to learn IoT protocols, microcontroller programming, and LED light control. CheerLights is a global network of synchronized colored lights. Everyone subscribes to the latest CheerLights color and sets their lights to the same color. The color is either set on the CheerLights Discord Server by anyone.
