My primary takeaway from this project was an appreciation for programming devices that do not always have an outward display of success.  In other words, code that I have written in previous classes on my PC will immediately tell me if my code is working correctly or not.  If the code is not working, I can run the program line by line to determine the error.  With the Photon, I have no way of easily isolating the problem.  Instead, I had to work in ways to segment my code while is going through its continuous loop.  I achieved this primarily by using buttons and cloud variables.  In future projects I will know to build in similar breaks to make debugging easier.
