20 Dollar 20 Minute Weather Station with ESP8266, Thingspeak, & Esp Easy

Lets build a weather station which logs temperature, humidity, and air pressure.

And, lets make this quick. How quick? 20 minutes! I swear! I have the video to prove it!

We will use an ESP8266, the ESP Easy firmware, and ThingSpeak.

Optionally, you can use some buttons to make resetting and firmware flashing mode easier to engage.

Cost wise I'm not including the breadboard, hookup wires, or 3v USB UART. Those should already be on hand if you are any sort of self respecting electronics person.
