Program Maker Pi Pico and ESP01 with Blynk IoT App using Arduino IDE

Besides MicroPython or CircuitPython, you can program Raspberry Pi Pico using Arduino IDE too!

Introduction

Around last week, the Arduino community shared how to program a Raspberry Pi Pico using the Arduino IDE. Once I knew about this, the first thing I wanted to try was to program the ESP01 on the Maker Pi Pico. So, how about we try to program using the Blynk IoT code example in Arduino IDE? Ok let’s try!
