SparkFun and myDevices Partner to Accelerate IoT Project Development for Makers & Engineers

The SparkFun ESP8266 Thing Dev Board is officially supported inside myDevices’ Cayenne IoT project builder

BOULDER, Colo. & LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--myDevices, the Internet of Things (IoT) solutions company behind the Cayenne IoT solution builder, and SparkFun® Electronics, a worldwide leader in open-source hardware, today announced its partnership dedicated to supporting the rapid prototyping and IoT development efforts of makers and engineers.


"Our community of users have expressed an overwhelming desire to integrate their ESP8266 devices into their Cayenne projects. Now they will be enabled to use this popular Thing Dev board to seamlessly connect and communicate with Cayenne's extensive library of supported devices to create amazing IoT projects."
With 30.7 billion connected devices in use by 2020 (as estimated by Bain Capital), providing the necessary development tools to makers will determine the growth of customized IoT solutions brought to market. myDevices' Cayenne platform, free for makers, supports the work of 260,000 users with its drag-and-drop IoT Project Builder, allowing those users to quickly design, prototype, and commercialize IoT solutions without needing enterprise-level resources.

SparkFun's ESP8266 Thing Development Board is the first non-LoRa board to be integrated and supported in the platform through its IoT Ready Program, opening up development possibilities to makers looking to create IoT projects with WiFi using Cayenne. SparkFun has led the way in bringing open-source digital and programmable electronics to hobbyists, engineers, pro-makers, and education markets. The company provides development boards, sensors, kits, robotics components, and instructional resources to facilitate IoT projects.

"It's a perfect union. Both companies are dedicated to helping engineers quickly design, prototype and bring their ideas to market. By integrating our products, we have shortened the prototyping cycle time and decreased the development costs for our IoT community," said Glenn Samala, CEO of SparkFun.

"We are excited to kick off our partnership with SparkFun by on boarding the ESP8266 into Cayenne through our IoT Ready Program," said Kevin Bromber, CEO of myDevices. "Our community of users have expressed an overwhelming desire to integrate their ESP8266 devices into their Cayenne projects. Now they will be enabled to use this popular Thing Dev board to seamlessly connect and communicate with Cayenne's extensive library of supported devices to create amazing IoT projects."
