Blinking LED

When learning a new programming language, the first thing that people teach you is the Hello World. In case of Arduino and ESP32's it's blinking an LED light.

Most ESP32 development boards have a built-in LED. So you don't need to hook up an external one. The built-in LED can be used to indicate status for example. Like blink twice while it's connecting to WiFi or something.

Full code:

// Only if the pins of your board are different
#define LED_BUILTIN 22

void setup() {

void loop() {
digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, HIGH);
digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, LOW);
