This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

It's a good breakout board. I'd like the through holes for the actual DB9 to be significantly oversized so that you could mount a standard DB9 to it directly.
As it is, I had to solder wires to the DB9's wire pots and then solder the wires to the breakout board. If the holes were oversized, I could have cut out the middleman and just wired the female DB9 to it directly.
