Yes you are right. But a question @jon would it also be possible to exchange the components onto the current version of the Tessel and replace it with the CC3100 or CC3200 ?
In that case I thought about to order some.
Do I envisage it right: Because this is the same Module-Family, we could use the current JS-Libs to access the same functionality also on CC3100/3200 ? If so, it would be only a diligence work to implement the other stuff, isn't it ?
How much is it for me, if you build an test board with this components and I will start to do the expected diligence work ?
Could you go deeper into describing what you are expecting about the necessary effort from two points of view:
1) The value of jobs to be done in general
2) the expected time someone will get it done if he/she is a "good software engineer", never done MCs before but is also familiar with electronics and knows to solder (so he/she could get it done with a little bit effort).
