Hello. Is it normal for the ESP32 board to start uploading a sketch only when BOOT button is pressed?
The error I get:

It is annoying to press button everytime i want to flash a device. Is there any way to overcome this problem?

Yeah but why not make it so you dont need to press anything? In my application device will be enclosed i certainly dont want to have external button just for programming. I used weemos mini d1 and ESP8266 did not have any simmilar problems. Im curious whether thats the same for everyone. If so, thumbs down for esp32
