2. You may need to one more steps after run command **particle setup**, that is, connect you device (PC or Mac) to a wi-fi AP whose name contain **Photon**, especially on Windows 10.
2. Use [Web IDE]( for your project. Login with your account and choose your device (click the 2nd last icon on left column).
We recommend you choose [Web IDE]( to compile or flashing your code to Photon which is much quicker than using Particle Dev, if your internet connectivity is not so good.

int led1 = D4; //set D4 as output

void setup() {
pinMode(led1, OUTPUT);

void loop() {

digitalWrite(led1, HIGH);

// We'll leave it on for 1 second...
