Getting Started with Raspberry Pi GPIO and Python.
At Ciseco we love to make "stuff". Our passion is making complex technology easy! We want you to build exciting stuff too. We want you to turn dreams into reality! Just add imagination and an eagerness to get stuck in and you are in business. Our customers already build the implausible, the once impossible, perhaps even the most valuable. With us and a little effort...."you can".
Once soldered yours will look like this, you dont have to install all the headers if you are not going to need them.
