I asked for help from the publisher and author. The publisher, Pakt, referred my query to Marco. He replied by asking :

I have replied to Marco telling him what I have done and asking if I am on the right path, but no reply.
What confuses me is that I can compile some ESP8266 related sketches in the examples, but not others.
I'm not totally computer illiterate (I am old and pre-date even the first IBM PCs and Windows ) but this is foreign to me. I don't know if it is in the code, or something to do with the board and libraries
Have you found a solution?
I'm facing the same problem.
