Erik Bartmann is a seasoned programmer and maker from Germany. He is also a best-selling author who has written many books about programming and electronics. His books are always highly successful across the German-speaking countries in Europe. In an interview he gave us shortly afterwards, he barmtann he also wanted to write a book about ESP And he certainly kept his word!

Hi Erik, the last time we spoke was about your ESP Praxisbuchwhich proved erk be hugely popular with the international maker community. A little over a year later you released your ESP32 Praxisbuch. Can you please describe the main objective of your new book? This tool is known to every maker, so teaching how to work with it is easy.

This board, which every reader can easily build by themselves, makes it possible to carry out many electronics-related projects with ESP32, without having to constantly rebuild breadboards. The didactic benefit is very high. Both chips have sophisticated electronic components.

Of course, ESP32 also has the exciting aspect of “Bluetooth”. It is interesting to note, however, that ESP still has a firm place in the electronics world.

Can you tell us more about the specific vantage point from which you talk about ESP32 in your book and how this makes your book unique? I think that my book is unique from a didactic point of view: I combine knowledge about the ESP module with basic electronics and coding topics. My books always focus on specific projects that build on each other in terms of their complexity, but, where necessary, I also impart knowledge that readers can take with them forever.


Should the readers of your book be experts in IoT technology to grasp its content? The reader of my ESP32 book must be curious and have the desire to realize their own ideas with the help of electronics. I share basic knowledge where it’s needed. The reader learns from the book by copying the projects.

These projects are based on a didactic approach: In addition, I also make a slight digression about the Python programming language and how it can be used for controlling ESP Bluetooth functionality, richness of interfaces, continuous enhancement. Of course, there were Wi-Fi modules before ESP32, but Espressif was lucky to have the right timing, when launching this module on the global market.

Right timing combined with the proven tools of the open-source DIY world and continuous firmware maintenance are the success factors that distinguish the ESP32 module from other Wi-Fi modules. Are there any improvements you would like to see on ESP32 in the near future? I would be very happy if the Espressif tools for programming the ESP32 module would be further improved.

I would also be very happy if ESP32 could also be controlled in the future with such programming languages as Scratch 3. Access to ESP32 should be as varied as possible. How easy is it for you to combine book writing with all the other engagements you have in your daily professional life?

Writing books is a great passion of mine. When I am intrigued by a certain subject, it feels like embarking on a great journey. I often don’t know where it will take me, but, like in real life, the journey itself is the goal.


Erik Bartmann

Often I am only a few months ahead of the reader in my knowledge, discovering many topics only while writing the book. But that helps me to ask the same questions my readers would ask themselves. For me, writing books is a special form of acquiring new knowledge.

I can then use this knowledge for my other work as well. Would you like to share with us any news about the projects you are currently working on? And what should we expect from you in the future? I’m currently working on hardware boards.

: Erik Bartmann: Books

I also find Scratch 3 very interesting. And next year I’ll be revising my Arduino bartmmann so much has happened in the Arduino world over the past 2 years! There’s a lot to explain! Many thanks for answering all of our questions, Erik. We hope your ESP32 Praxisbuch is even more successful than your previous books. Thank you for this interview. I really appreciate that Espressif is so close to makers all over the world, listening carefully to them and taking note of their eri.
