I love that MicroCenter carries so many products for the maker crowd, but I've found the selection of microcontrollers a bit lacking. I find most projects I build need WiFi connectivity to be part of a home network and accessible to tools like Homebridge. What are the least expensive WiFi-capable microcontrollers at MicroCenter that also support CircuitPython development? You see the problem.
Adafruit has a wonderful product, the Adafruit QT Py ESP32-S2 WiFi Dev Board that is tiny, cheap, and supports WiFi. How can I get someone at MicroCenter to consider stocking this? Can I just go to my local store and ask them to order it even if it is not in MicroCenter's catalog?
Greetings. Thanks for your suggestion on the product addition! I will pass this over to the proper teams to see if it something we can look into carrying in the future.
As for coming to the store and ordering it, that is not something we offer. We do not provide special ordering for items.
Thanks, Ian! So did I stumble on the way to suggest products (i.e. post a request on the forum) or is there a better way for me to put a bug in "the proper team's" ear, so to speak, more directly?
You're welcome! There is not really anything else I can suggest for that at this time.
