Arduino Explore IoT Kit MRK 1010

I'm in Activity2
upload the code but I'm getting the errors
like this in the serial Monitor for IoT

I doubled check web editor
it reads the temp and humidity no problem once I reupload Activity1

is this how IoT works usually? is it always this unreliable?
this is very discouraging

the course gives answer "Any errors that may occur will be printed in the serial monitor."
ok... what great solution

has anyone dealt with this and fixed this issue? I would love to move forward on this project
thank you for your time

Posting pictures of code and/or error messages is usually a waste of time

The easier you make it to read and copy your code the more likely it is that you will get help

Please follow the advice given in the link below when posting code , use code tags and post the code here

If you get errors when compiling please copy them from the IDE using the "Copy error messages" button and paste the clipboard here in code tags

Moderator edit : code tags added

  Sketch generated by the Arduino IoT Cloud Thing "Temp and Hum for farming"

  Arduino IoT Cloud Variables description

  The following variables are automatically generated and updated when changes are made to the Thing

  float humidity;
  float temperature;

  Variables which are marked as READ/WRITE in the Cloud Thing will also have functions
  which are called when their values are changed from the Dashboard.
  These functions are generated with the Thing and added at the end of this sketch.

#include "thingProperties.h"
#include <Arduino_MKRIoTCarrier.h>
MKRIoTCarrier carrier;

void setup()
  // Initialize serial and wait for port to open:
  // This delay gives the chance to wait for a Serial Monitor without blocking if none is found
  // Defined in thingProperties.h
  // Connect to Arduino IoT Cloud
     The following function allows you to obtain more information
     related to the state of network and IoT Cloud connection and errors
     the higher number the more granular information you’ll get.
     The default is 0 (only errors).
     Maximum is 4
  //Wait to get cloud connection to init the carrier
  while (ArduinoCloud.connected() != 1)
  CARRIER_CASE = false;

void loop()
  // Your code here
  temperature = carrier.Env.readTemperature();
  humidity = carrier.Env.readHumidity();

@nicolasganea - I see that you decided to ignore the advice to use code tags when posting code

Why did you do that ?

No, I was trying to figure it out I was hoping to be corrected
thats why I'm buying kits to learn how to do this stuff

I have added the code tags and Auto formatted the code in the IDE

Thank you!
so when I upload code always add

` 3 times at the start and Grave Accent at the end
is there any cases there is a rule it doesn't work?
thank you for all your help!

The simplest way to upload code formatted and laid out correctly is to use Auto Format in the IDE then right click and select "Copy for forum" and paste the clipboard in a post here with the code tags already added for you

Alternatively copy the code from the IDE with the normal copy command, paste it here, select all of it and click the </> icon above the edit window or paste the code here and type [code] before it and [/code] after it or paste the code here and type 3 backticks before it and 3 backticks after it

All of this is described in the linke that I posted. Did you read any of it ?

As a new user to this is what I did

read your reply and you mention " paste the clipboard here in code tags" followed up by

clicking on your link

I scrolled to the part "use code tags"

not aware that In this toolbox would something different I could click </>
instead that's why you saw in my post that you edited it had </> at the start and end of the code

thinking it was going to do the same thing.
formating the code new to me had no idea what that was about there no examples visually that help me understand what you wanted that's why I buy courses to see visually

skipped the part about writing the post cause it wasn't relevant cause it wasn't what you wanted. instead I focused on what you said "read and copy your code the more likely it is that you will get help" Thats what I wanted to move forward to go back to course

Actually it had < before the code and /> after it
The start of the original post

the end of the original post

This is what I did
and problems I ran into this was nothing what I expected....

1.changed USB 3 times thought maybe it was broken
2. The port stopped working it was working since Wednesday so I went to my brothers last night
3. we downloaded the file that allows MKR 1010 to work for my mac and his mac air
4. This was over my head on this we went on the Terminal type "ls -lah" to see if it would connect
5. it wasn't connecting to the port then we ended up finding out it was being blocked
6. it was my Malware protector we unstalled it
7. so we thought maybe it's mac computers that are the problem since it wasn't connecting to the port still.
8. we went to my brother PC did all the same steps getting file to run MRK 1010 we were starting to think it was the hardware...
9. at this point we wanted go to factory setting finding out pushing the reset button twice really quick will do that. it was blinking sooooo wtf
10. At this point my brothers goes what were the steps did you do that got you to this point you would never guess this.
11. When configuring the wifi in the course it tells you can name it whatever you want and password this isn't case... it was creating a loop. and we made it's own server on the wifi
to gain access to it... then it finally connected but still wouldn't connect to the port. ( I may be explaining this part wrong about wifi sorry inadvance)
12. then we went into it to change it instead of darthdingus my wifi at home ( which I forgot we got a new modem)
13. The problem why I was getting the error was you have to make sure that the name and password is exactly the same as your modem where you receive your internet. FML! I would of never figure this out the course sets you up for failure.
so if you run into this problem delete all the work on IoT cloud and just redo it and add the code
it will connect and you will be able to read the temperature and Humidity and MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE "Network Name (SSID): exactly as your modem so it connects.

Thank you UKHel for teaching me how to put code in toolbox correctly.

Sorry if I was frustrating I'm still new to this. I learned a lot from this and will make sure to explain every step that got me to the errors

Hi, you to be careful about the case sensitivity part when you enter the WiFi credentials.
