Isolating the pin numbers to improve wirings

Obviously, it is easy to turn on the LED that represents number 1 when it is connected to GPIO pin number 1. In our previous wiring, the LED that represented each number was connected to the same GPIO pin number. The schema was also very easy to understand with the connections where the LED number matched the pin number.

However, the wirings between the board and the breadboard were a bit complicated because the GPIO pins in the board go from 13 down to 1, from left to right. The breadboard has the LEDs in the opposite direction, that is, from 1 to 9, left to right. Thus, the wire that connect the GPIO pin number 1 with LED number 1 has to go from right to left and crosses the other jumper wires. We ...
