Tell us about yourself!
Potentially, yes. If you're going to do something like that, though, take a look at the NodeMCU (which is basically and ESP8266-12E with a USB front end and a bread-board friendlier form factor). You can program the NodeMCU directly in the Lua language or use the Arduino IDE as this Instructable does. There are also ESP8266-derived "shield" type boards for the NodeMCU; I buy most of that kind of stuff from banggood.com, since a lot of it hasn't been picked up by US vendors yet.
