Prototyping with breadboards

In the previous example, we interacted with the onboard LED, and therefore, we didn't wire any additional electronic component to the board. Now, it is time to move to more complex samples in which we will have to start working with additional components and tools.

We don't want to create a new printed circuit board (PCB) and solder electronic components to the board each time we want to wire some electronic components to the board. We will be prototyping many electronics projects throught the book and we will also continue prototyping after we learn each lesson towards our IoT adventure. Thus, we will use a solderless breadboard as our construction base for our electronic prototypes.

Tip

Solderless breadboards are also ...
