A couple months ago I started trying to make a water meter connect with the cloud using a photon to count pulses. I received a lot of help from the community, especially from @Rftop he helped me going as far as to re-write my base code and included a ton of comments that helped me learn my way around it , and even going through my meter datasheet and troubleshooting the connections/settings to use.
Since then I have worked on it further and now have a pulse counter that triggers a particle webhook that sends information to a website to be stored into a MySQL database. I wanted to share in case it helps anyone searching the forums in the future, and to give you guys an opportunity to provide any feedback or point out any issues you can see.
I am a beginner and this is my first foray into it since learning HTML about 10 years ago haha so any advice is a big help.
