Python developer for IoT project - You must live in Eastern Europe or Russia (14 September 2019)

*** As of 18 September 2019 this project is still available ***

*** OVERVIEW ***

- Ten US dollars per hour.

- One hour per day (or per night).

- You will help me design, code, and develop an IoT product using MicroPython running on an ESP32 microcontroller.

- You do *not* need any experience with... ESP32, microcontrollers, electronics, electrical engineering, mechatronics, Arduino, PCB, or circuit design.

- If Freelancer.com prevents you from bidding on this project or if you want to avoid “spending” one of your Freelancer bids you can apply "passively” for this project by pasting "Python_IoT_14_September_2019" into your Freelancer profile. Please see the section below in this posting called *** APPLYING "PASSIVELY" *** for more information.

*** LOCATION ***

You must live in Eastern Europe or Russia.

*** RATE ***

I will pay you $10 (ten US dollars per hour) on Freelancer.com. However, normally Freelancer.com takes a 10% commission. Therefore, I expect you will be receive $9 per hour (nine US dollars per hour).

*** HOURS ***

You must work *one hour* per day, five days (or nights) per week.

For example, I would allow you to choose to work one hour on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday.

*** EXPERIENCE ***

I do not care about your experience. Rather, I am interested in your ability to solve difficult problems creatively, efficiently, and effectively.

In other words, despite the title of this project, I don't actually care if you have any experience with Python, nor with MicroPython, nor with the ESP32 microcontroller. However, I do care if you are very intelligent, very creative, and very good at solving challenging engineering problems.

*** PROJECT DETAILS ***

You will help me transform my functional specification into a technical specification. Then I will purchase two ESP32 development boards (and two breadboards, and two sets of sensors, etcetera) to help you when you are debugging.

Please imagine the following hypothetical chat between you and I...

You: "I think the ESP32 development board you bought for me on AliExpress is bad!"

Me: "Do you think both of them bad?"

You: "Oh. Ummm. Well, actually... I replicated the problem on both of the ESP32 development boards. I found a bug in my code. Sorry."

Me: "I am glad I bought two ESP32 development boards for you."

You: "Yes. That was a good idea."

In my experience, when engineers encounter a vexing problem they tend to blame an external factor. Also, of course, cheap electronics purchased on AliExpress often have flaws.

*** WHY WILL I PAY YOU HOURLY? ***

By paying you hourly and limiting the number of hours you work at a time, I would be able to avoid the need to create detailed specifications for you because I would be able to regularly check on the work you were doing for me.

In theory detailed project requirements with milestone payments seem sensible. But I have found in practice they are actually not usually feasible. In my experience, detailed project requirements with milestone payments typically lead to misunderstandings, resentment and discord.

*** APPLYING "PASSIVELY" ***

If you intend to bid on this project the "normal way" please ignore this section entirely.
