The Wimaxit 1024 x 600 resolution IPS display touchscreen for the Raspberry Pi is an excellent choice for those who need more screen than the 7" Touchscreen offered by Raspberry Pi. The touchscreen supports up to a five-point touch interface and is already integrated in the screen. The controller board is included in the panel and features a way to mount a raspberry pi The display has plenty of mounting options or included feet for it to stand on its own.
Beyond its uses with the Raspberry Pi, it can be used in general as an HDMI display with any HDMI devices (It will require its own power source in this configuration). The display also comes with two speakers which mount to the back of the display and are integrated into the HDMI interface. A backlight/volume adjustment button is also integrated into the HDMI functionality. It's a great solution for Kiosk type projects with the Raspberry Pi, but also holds great functionality with other HDMI devices as well.
If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
