    Welcome @user109345 to the world of Espruino and your keen and eager interest to get started!

    'was totally flashed'

    Thank you for the introduction to a new phrase. Unable to locate an idiom that closely matches that. Please explain the origins and meaning. . . .

    'I've followed the instructions to add my user to plugdev group'

    Please provide link so that we may follow along!

    For ESP8266, were all the warnings observed on this page?­g

    under heading Initial Flashing
    'Use esp-12 modules if at all possible, avoid esp-01 modules: . . . .    . . . . The esp-01 has barely any usable I/O . . . . '

    Please read through that entire page.

    Incidentally, I've had moderate success with the ESP-12E, at the expense of a massive time commitment but abandoned it's use as it is not an official supported board, and has too few I/O to be practical for my projects under development.    caveat emptor

    'give me a helping hand to start with my first IoT and Espruino'

    While I admire the tenacity to start with a device that might be inexpensive and currently understood from previous Arduino projects, what is the ultimate goal here?

    Should it be to learn/understand Javascript with Espruino, then might I suggest the easy to get started with Pico. Just plug it in to a USB port and you are up-and-running in minutes.

    Have the tutorials been reviewed?
