The first thing is to get your Photons prepped and ready to accept firmware over WiFi.
If you have never used the Particle Photon before, you will need to visit the Particle website to learn how to setup a Photon for first time use.

All of that information can be found at the following link:
Once your Photon setup, you will also need to install the Particle Command Line Interface (CLI) on your computer. This will allow us to watch the serial output from the Photon in our terminal/command console.
