Greetings, I recently purchased one of these.https://learn.adafruit.com/pigrrl-zero/overview
I was enticed by claims of moderate difficulty and it being a reasonable project for someone new to soldering.
6 hours later...
Yeah, this was the most frustrating thing I have ever done in my life. The worst part was trying to get tiny little wires soldered to previously soldered connections.
When I turned it on, of course I get a red blinking light and the thing starts to overheat. Is there any way to salvage my project or do I just chuck the whole thing. Also, I bought two.
I teach a computer science class and was interested in doing something like this as a project. Now I just want to buy 20 of them and smash them with a hammer.
Also, who the #$#^# thought this was moderate difficulty? You have to solder 40 connections on something smaller than a stick of gum. What the hell does hard look like?
