There's a lot of Raspberry Pi information going around lately. Whether Pi 3, Zero, Zero W, or one of the many previous iterations, any forum will have thousands of people giving all possible answers to a problem. Though most methods work for any version, deciding which information to choose can be challenging. The Raspberry Pi 3 B+ Starter Kit is a great way to gain a solid introduction to the small, credit-card-sized computer. With this kit, you will be able to get your Raspberry Pi 3 B+ connected through our SparkFun Pi Wedge to a breadboard and, by utilizing the RPi's 40-pin GPIO, will be able to control pushbuttons, LEDs, and a host of user-created circuits.
This kit will not require soldering and is recommended for anyone with a drive to learn more about the Raspberry Pi and its programming. So if you are looking for a new challenge or a way to get in on the RPi craze, check out the Raspberry Pi 3 B+ Starter Kit!
Note: This is a legacy product for those who need the Raspberry Pi 3B+. Please consider buying one of the Raspberry Pi 4 Basic Kits instead.
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.
Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.

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.
