Coding My First Electronics Project (YouTube Subscriber Counter)

Welcome to Episode Four of my weekly series! I decided to dive into the field of electronics and make a YouTube subscriber counter. I coded up a program to pull my live subscriber count from the YouTube Data API. That seems to be working just fine, but I’m having trouble displaying it on the LCD via my WeMos D1 Mini. I’m still working on that. This is my first time doing a project like this. Help & advice is appreciated.


I share and document my experiences on topics including computer science, software engineering, and iOS development. I’m a full-time Software Engineer and a part-time YouTuber & iOS developer. My hobbies outside of what’s been mentioned include surfing, snowboarding, hunting, fishing, and playing video games.
