Breadboard Intro

The breadboard seems to be the backbone of expedited circuit testing. Personally, I find difficulty figuring out how the circuits correlate to one another and especially by means of the IC we used.

Frankly, it's a flood of new information, but the solderless capability of the breadboard allows mistakes to be quickly remedied. In regards to the blinky tutorial, I was unable to make the LED blink, but I was able to make it light up. Everything I plugged in fit the diagram, but it turned out to be that my resistors were plugged in backwards (never happening again, hopefully)

After getting the solid LEDs, I was able to tinker with it by comparing my board with classmates, and through much trial and error.. I had blinkies!
